Sake Bar Hagi had all the right ingredients for fun, dive restaurant. You would walk right by it and not notice this hidden gem. If you dared to look down the stairs you'd notice a line of anxious diners all wanting to get in. The restaurant had a mix of regulars and tourists in the tiny space. I sat at the bar, looked at the menu and was stumped what to order. The bartender was extremely helpful and recommended something that wasn't on the menu. I'm not sure what it was except it was served in a pottery pot, delicious broth (spicy) with tofu, chicken, and vegetables. Will definitely need to come back the next time I'm in NYC.
