We Live For Sushi & Lobby Bar Dates
The super fresh flown-in-from-Japan fish at Sushi Azabu is thought of as a well-kept secret, and now it’s a secret that you and your S.O. can keep. This subterranean speakeasy sushi spot is intimate, hushed and as close to a Tokyo sushi bar as it gets, with an incredible omakase that should be experienced at the bar for maximum wonder—we’re talking tiny, tasty appetizers, steamy soup, sashimi, a “toro-tasting,” nigiri, and dessert. You can, of course, order any excellently-prepared piece of fish you’d like, and there’s even a special nigiri set to tempt you. But, trust us, it’s best to let the chef work his magic right before your eyes.
Innovative cocktail joint A.L.B. (Arlo Lobby Bar) is a cool, contemporary spot with an exciting lineup of 24 cocktails all made with New York City inspo. The pop-art plastered chill space includes fun, alluring concoctions like the Times Square Swizzle (rye whiskey, Hennessy V.S cognac, Parce 3-year rum, ancho chile, pineapple, mint, lime), Union Square Closeup (Harlo rum blend, Torres 15-year-old Spanish brandy, sweet vermouth, cinnamon, hazelnut, sarsaparilla), and the Columbia Student (amontillado sherry, coconut, blueberry). It’s a nice spritz of energy, movement, and color after the quiet and calm of your elegant sushi dinner.
