MIDTOWN EAST. Sake is serious stuff at this authentic Japanese bar, located between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. In fact, aficionados of rice wine find themselves in quite a quandary as the stylish Sakagura stocks some 200 distinct varieties; meanwhile, beer, liquor and wine are available to those with more conservative palates. The sleek space has also garnered quite a rep for its food ­ little wonder considering superbly done dishes like hirame carpaccio, saikoro steak and sashimi.
