Dewa-sansan is dewa-liscious!

L1010053.JPGScott and I had plans for a long time to see Michael and Joseph for a long overdue double date. Scott and I went to great lengths to find a unique place that was new to us all and we picked a new Japanese restaurant on east 6th street Chiyono. well, apparently, it was new to a lot of other people too… we couldn’t get a table for 4… I didn’t make a reservation… the waitress was just so darn NICE saying that there was no way we could get a table. all that bowing and all those apologies did make me feel better about getting kicked out. Our friends quickly came to the rescue and suggested Bao 111 on adventurous ave C! The food was great and I got the honor of picking the saké! Ok, SIZE is not everything. no really. really!!! When the waiter brought around my pick – a bottle of Dewasansan Daigingo, i was a little shocked the bottle was a little um… vertically challenged. not what you want to see when you’re paying $50 for a bottle! To make matters worse, the waiter kept pouring rounds as we sipped and shwooop – he whisked the bottle away the second it was empty. I wanted to stick the bottle in my bag and take it home so I could post it for you, readers!
You know you’re devoted when you ask your waiter to pick your bottle back out of the garbage so you can take it home to post in your blog. How does it taste? it’s yummy. Some noted a ‘juicy fruit’ – ‘starburst’ finish. in the end I think we agreed that it was a green apple taste. clean, crisp & crunchy.
Here is a description of this particular sake I found somewhere on line:

Dewazakura “Dewasansan” Yamagatata Prefecture Green Ridge Sake With its floral nose and mellow fruity flavor, “Dewasansan” is a rewarding choice for wine drinkers new to the world of sake. It has a wholesome freshness, a green apple tartness and a refreshing finish.

Here are the pictures that caused the dumpster diving:
