Maru/
Hatchobori: Wine bar
₯3552-4477
€Data
A liquor shop, a
standing bar, and a
casual sit-down
grill, Bar Maru is
many things to many
people. Browse the
shelves, and if you
find something you
like you can crack
it open on the spot
for a modest Y500
corkage fee. Pop
into the tachinomiya
next door for a
quick drink, or head
to the second floor
for a more comfort-
able scene. There
are about sixteen
wines, including
homemade sangria
and, in the colder
months, hot wine.

Sit down to a glass
of Siglio (admitted-
ly no Gran Reserva,
but at Y450, who's
complaining?) and
start grazing on
Spanish and Japanese
tapas - an array of
cured meats, sauteed
mushrooms luxuriat-
ing in garlicky
olive oil, grilled
free-range chicken
and fresh seafood,
all reasonably
priced.

Get more serious
with a big, bold
Cabernet Sauvignon
from Israel's Yarden
Golan Heights Winery
and move on to
grilled Iberico pork
or entrecote steak.
The friendly atmos-
phere, with its
eclectic mix of
Shimokitazawa-style
hipsters, salarymen,
and Hatchobori lo-
cals, is as compel-
ling as the food and
drink. No English.
