This place is a little difficult to find as it is in the basement of an office building, but after you enter and go down the stairs, the place opens up into a massive seating area (by Manhattan standards). The wait staff was exceedingly courteous...More

Found Sakagura on an Eater essential list on a recent trip to midtown NYC. It's a delightful little bento box of a restaurant hidden in the basement of a non-descript office building. The meal was wonderful. It started with a sake recommendation from the bartender....More
