I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

Much like the Shark Eye at Mother of Pearl and a Bloody Mary (or Red Snapper) at Old King Cole Bar, the Sakagura Martini has become the stuff of NYC cocktail legend and in just a matter of a year. While it is very visual and Instagram-ready (if you can find the right light and angle), the drink is simplicity itself. Except you might not have thought of combining gin, sake, and maraschino liqueur for a smooth subtle martini twist. And garnished with a preserved cherry blossom, you’ll completely forget olives ever existed. Price: $16

    I don’t even like cherries and i loved this!! Definitely worthy of the top dishes recap! Although i have to say because i must always order that addictive kombu celery at bar goto it’s a good idea to have it with a different drink *after* this one. Ask me why i know this.
