È un ristorante-bistrò e cocktail bar di cucina giapponese, ma con qualcosa in più. Qui siamo in una vera e propria casa del Sake, il vino di riso che arriva dal Sol Levante dalle tantissime sfumature di gusto. Da Sakeya sono ben 150 le etichette da 47 regioni giapponesi, che hanno patrocinato la nascita del locale - ideato da Lorenzo Ferraboschi e Maiko Takashima - allo scopo far conoscere le eccellenze dei rispettivi territori. Nel panorama milanese mancava un locale di questo tipo. L’ambiente è accogliente, la mise en place è minimal e di stile orientale e la sala è dominata da una parete, dove sono le bottiglie di Sake esposte a fare da elemento di arredo. Birre e distillati giapponesi completano l’offerta beverage; se preferite il vino, nella lista troverete pure quello, sia pure con una scelta limitata. E se pensate di farvi o fare un regalo, nel corner dedicato allo shop trovate il Sake e molti oggetti dal Giappone.

Si può iniziare con i cocktail di Alessio Simonini, Sake mixologist e store manager del locale: ad esempio il signature drink Mitsuoko, con sfumature di lemon verbena e yuzu o lo Hanami, un Sake Martini. E poi c’è la cucina dello chef Masaki Inoguchi, studiata per valorizzare l’abbinamento fra le ricette giapponesi e il Sake: specialità alla brace (Sumibi Kushiyaki) dallo spiedino del pregiato manzo wagyu alle ali di pollo laccate al sesamo, al Gindara (filetto di merluzzo Black Cod cotto sui carboni), oppure all’Unagi To Nasubi (tortino di melanzana e anguilla in tempura). Oriente e occidente si incontrano in piatti come l’Amaebi, dove il crudo di gambero rosso di Mazara del Vallo affumicato è servito con burrata moromi, orzo fermentato e zenzero o nell’Asari (vongolata al vapore sfumata al Sake). E poi sushi, tataki, Iaki Tako (polpo in tre cotture). Tante specialità ben spiegate in carta e pure dai solleciti addetti di sala. Prontissimi a consigliarvi per gli immancabili assaggi di Sake.

The only issue I can say is that the restaurant was too brightly lit. Sakeya is quite beautiful inside but the lighting kills a bit of the ambiance.
Restaurant
Thanks Ryan!

We went for dinner, we got a proper dining experience. Having been to Japan, I can say this place is truly authentic. Amazing sashimi straight from Tsukiji, but the lamb was the unexpected highlight. Great, professional service and a quiet environment even on a Saturday night!
Restaurant
Thank you Francesco! We hope see you very soon!

Last time I had a guided tour within the menu with dishes and different kinds of sake to match all the plates. Now the choice is completely left to the customer and I had to ask for different sakes. Everything is indeed super but as an experience I prefer the first one made one year ago.
