Happy National Sake Day. A bunch of restaurants across town are celebrating with Sake Hour. The holiday coincides with the start of the sake season in Japan, when brewing officially begins. Here’s our round-up:
— Haru is inviting New Yorkers to toast to this tradition on a dime during Sake Hour, where Haru’s signature hot/cold sake is offered for $4.50 and sake-based specialty cocktails are offered for $7.50 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
— Koi Bryant Park is offering the Rockin Cucumber, a sake cocktail with vodka, lime juice, and cucumber. Additionally, Koi Sake, a fragrant, well-balanced sake of the premier Junmai Daiginjo class, and is sold exclusively to Koi guests — at both the brand new Koi SoHo and Koi Bryant Park — for $85 per 500-milliliter bottle.
In celebration of Japan’s National Sake Day, SushiSamba will be offering 50 percent off all bottles of sake from its premium selection. The promotion will be available at all New York locations on October 1 from noon to close.
