Looking for a great spot for Japanese Robata, Noodles and more? Salt + Charcoal along with their Japanese style Itzakaya menu has a full bar with a great selection of Japanese Whiskeys, Cocktails and some very tasty infused Sakes.

My first time at Salt+Charcoal was to check out their Happy Hour. It’s low key and geared towards enjoying a causal cocktail vs pre-gaming. I started with a Yuzu Martini and some of their very tasty wings, a nice into to their culinary skills. I decided on one more drink and from the infused Sake menu I choose the Shiso(this leaf has a mild mint and anise flavor to it)…I choose well. 

On my next visit I went for a causal at the bar dinner and started with their twist on a Dirty Martini with Rosemary infused Sake. We decided to eat Itzakaya style (the Japanese version of Tapas) ordering Cheese Tempura with Wasabi Honey dip, Robato style Eel, raw Waygu Beef Sushi and Chicken Negima. 

After I knocked down the Martini it was time for more from their infused Sake menu and we tried the Sakura (Cherry Blossom, this is a delicate flavor not a Cherry bomb)which was also very good. 

Everything was delicious and menu is fairly priced for the quality of the food. Salt+Charcoal is a great spot for a small group, date, night out with a friend or just to grab a well crafted cocktail and get transported to Tokyo for a short spell…

Salt + Charcoal is located at 171 Grand Street
