Profile

This Tribeca lounge serves as an antidote to East Village sake dives, accessible to both the rice wine aficionado and the shochu novice. In the comfortably upscale space an extensive selection of sake, shochu, rice wines and Japanese beer are displayed by the bar. Descriptive menus help in choosing from among the 40 different varieties of rice wine or 16 varieties of shochu, and a numbered map of Japan on the wall allows patrons to match up selections from the menu with their city of origin. Though the drink list is several times longer, food at Shigure is just as much considered. Small plates range from staples like edamame to the more inventive potato avocado salad topped with a poached egg. Shigure's celebration of Japan extends even to the bathroom, which is equipped with a high-tech toilet, complete with electronic bidet.
