The cuisine of Yamagata Prefecture is the specialty at this stylish upscale izakaya, along with a nice selection of local craft sake. A dozen or so special sakes of the day are featured on the blackboard, or you can ask the staff for suggestions.

The food menu features creative and original dishes that use local Yamagata ingredients, such as the excellent roast tandoori chicken marinated in sake lees (Y1050) and the konyaku sashimi with gorgonzola and walnuts. A laver and tomato salad with vinegared miso and mustard dressing is a good starter and goes well with sake.

Local Yonezawa beef is served in several variations, including A5-grade steaks with mashed potatoes (Y2700). In addition to sake, drinks include a selection of fruit liqueurs and non-alcoholic fruit juices. Budget around Y3000 at dinnertime.
