Trendy drinks are mixed at an elegant bar that runs almost the entire length of this expansive Lower Shepherd Japanese restaurant. The patrons at Zake are even hipper and more sophisticated than the place itself. The presentation of food is exquisite, especially the nigiri and sashimi. For non-sushi lovers, there's incredible tempura calamari and a wonderful asparagus-stuffed mango chicken.
