Kenta Goto put in seven years of service at Pegu Club, drawing a devoted following for his modest, quiet style of service and expert skills. He is now breaking out with a bar of his own, and it may be the closest thing New York has seen to a Japanese-style cocktail bar since Angel’s Share arrived 20 years ago. Many cocktails have an Asian twist, using ingredients like sake and miso. Japanese beer is on offer, as well as a bar menu of Japanese appetizers and comfort-food dishes created by consulting chef Kiyo Shinoki, including Okonomi-yaki, savory pancakes inspired by Goto’s childhood memories of his mother’s restaurant outside of Tokyo. Based on the specs alone, the Sakura Martini (sake, gin, maraschino liqueur, cherry blossom) sounds like the way to go here.
