Why you should go. Sake guru John Gauntner said the sake industry has a paradoxical relationship with supply and demand, while sales have dropped in Japan, the United States has embraced sake with a nearly 30%-share of the export market. In 1998, only two stores in New York sold a decent range of sake, but that has completely changed. Premium sake such as daiginjo and the ultimate junmai daiginjo have elevated its global status. Where once perceived as a cheap novelty, sommeliers, speciality shops and an explosion of authentic Japanese Izakayas, or gastropubs, and ramen shops in New York have all helped to boost sake’s popularity.

Join Roki for an informative tasting session on the varieties of sake while enjoying sleek, elegant surroundings at this inventive Japanese newcomer.
