The North Fork is a place where the refrain “drink local” is often heard, but at one new Greenport restaurant, the focus is on a beverage that’s anything but.
Sake sommelier Yuki Mori, formerly general manager of the Manhattan restaurant Decibel, has brought authentic Japanese cuisine to the village with the opening of Stirling Sake in September.
Although the restaurant offers a full menu of Japanese items, like Yokohama gyoza and seaweed salad, the star of the show is Japanese rice wine.
“It’s all about the sake here,” said marketing director Rick Takemoto. “Our cuisine is to pair with sake.”
