One thing that is unique to this location is an expanded craft cocktail menu, helmed by Tatsu-Ya Family Beverage Director Michael Phillips, that is sure to delight. The creative cocktails that beautifully blends Western cocktail tradition with Japanese flavor components. I am officially obsessed with their Faux-zay frozen cocktail! The cocktail lineup includes:
Dachi Trejo – A tequila based concoction of sudachi, honeysuckle, salt.
Red Beard – A handsome rye whiskey based cocktail with red shiso, pomegranate, ginger and citrus.
Kaiun Collins -barley shochu creation with calpis, sansho, citrus and soda.
Faux-zay – A refreshing frozen cocktail made with plum wine, sake, berry and rose water.

I dined in on opening day and had a wonderful dining experience. The entrance is lined with misting fans and their is a water station to keep guests hydrated. Ordering was smooth and I was charmed with the stunning, welcoming space. As mentioned previously, I LOVE the Faux-zay, a fun play on the trendy frosé. While I didn\’t partake in ramen this visit (don\’t judge me, this was my second lunch of the day), I did thoroughly enjoy a brightly flavored vibrant cabbage & carrot based salad with lovely notes of ginger and miso. The new location is perfect for lunch, dinner and late night eats on the weekends.
