Abroad: Sake Shop in NYC: SAKAYA


At long last, true pioneers in the persons of Rick and Hiroko Smith have opened the first-ever sake-only shop in New York City!

To make things short and more precise, I though it was best to let Rick and Hiroko introduce themselves:

Hi everyone! We’re Rick and Hiroko and we’re sake enthusiasts with a dream. Our dream? To share our excitement about premium sake with kindred spirits like you. We believe the time has come for New York to have its first shop specializing in premium sake. Sakaya will focus on acquainting, educating, and familiarizing patrons with the pleasures of drinking sake, and pairing them with food. We hope to offer a learning experience that not only creates an appreciation for sake but also for the Japanese culture from which it originates.

We invite you to join us on our journey to fulfilling the dream. We’ll be sharing our experience as we build Sakaya, along with some basic information, fun facts, and insights into the cultural heritage of sake. We look forward to having you with us throughout the store’s gestation period and when we finally open our doors. Our address is 324 E. 9th Street (between 1st & 2nd Avenues) New York, NY 10003. If you have any questions or inquiry about our shop or just want to say hello

Please check their HOMEPAGE!
