Opened less than six months ago, Hideyuki Saito's Bronx bar takes the details of its drinks to a whole new level. Now it's got a food menu that's comparatively low-key but no less impressive. 

Owner-bartender Saito, who previously had a stint in a kitchen before taking up bartending almost ten years ago, here rolls out a compact menu of snacks and light dishes. 

Inspired by Japan's izakaya culture, food spans cold appetizers like seaweed salad (B80) and scallop with kimchi sauce (B100), as well as hot appetizers like gyoza (B120), made using his own recipe and served grilled or in soup.

Proper hungry? Opt for more filling dishes like Japanese-style pasta (from B240) and hayashi rice (beef with demiglace sauce, B250). 

As for drinks, we’re still bowled over by Saito's “Sei” (B380)—a deliciously rich blend of Bacardi Ocho, umeshu (plum wine), cacao, port wine, molasses and matcha, with a side treat of housemade rum yokan (Japanese dessert jelly).
