On our way back from Punta Dura, Meg and I noticed a new Sake Bar/Japanese restaurant that will soon open on Steinway Street, between 30th and 31st Avenue. We stopped in our tracks, as we were fascinated by this new addition, promising to bring something new and fresh to the nabe. Its success is yet to be seen, as Steinway doesn't have the best track record in terms of Japanese restaurants--Ginza Japanese restaurant closed about a year and half ago, which served Hibachi-style cuisine.
I'll keep you posted about its official opening, but on Thursday night, it looked like it was almost there. Holler if you know more...
