A Destination

SakaMai is a modern izakaya and sake lounge — a concept that bridges Japanese tradition with the urban Lower East Side. 

"[SakaMai is a} Japanese restaurant filtered through an American consciousness, respectful of tradition but not bound by it" - Ligaya Mishan, NY Times

The food program at SakaMai is as unique as the beverages we curate. Chef Akiyama brings together flavors from Japan but makes his program uniquely New York by focussing on quality regional ingredients and seasonal specialties. 


Our l.e.s. Steak to share is a prime example. Nothing says "NYC steak" like a Certified Angus 35-day dry aged, bone-in ribeye, on a bed of  seasonal grilled vegetables and accompanied with 3 Japanese inspired dipping sauces. 

New Yorkers know a good thing when they see it, and that's precisely why Chef Akiyama's food has been so sought after.  His signature "Egg on Egg on Egg", renowned not only for a beautiful composition, but also its unique combination of flavors and textures, has been the eye candy of multiple media outlets.

Enjoy SakaMai's signature Night Market Menu–inspired by Asian street food, small plates, sashimi-crudo, and large plates along with an array of Japanese beverages!

We celebrate the artisan beverages of Japan. If u have ever visited a Sakagura (sake brewery) you'd know the level of meticulousness is unmatched.   We wanted to celebrate that and have a stage for when brewers come to the States, to showcase their life's work.  

Everyone working with SakaMai believes in our core mission, and that is to broaden the horizon of our city to quality Japanese libations.   From Cocktails, Whiskeys, Shochu, Sake and Beer.   They are all made with love and the pursuit of perfection.
