Wander through the subterranean guts of an office high-rise and enter an expansive and tranquil room filled with screens, plants and smooth blond woodwork. Although the booths are reserved for diners (mostly sedate Midtown suits and their clients), the elevated bar is inviting enough for an after-work drink. A color-coded, cross-referenced menu offers an imposing selection of more than 200 sakes, along with some well-intentioned hints about which foods they go best with.
