Cherry, Cherry
Cherry Has Been Williamsburg’d

Williamsburg.

Saturday.

1:30am.

It’s time for some restorative sustenance.

Something that’ll take the edge off by the morning.

Also: sake. Why not a little sake?

Make it happen at Cherry Izakaya, the late-night-friendly new outpost of Dream Downtown’s Japanese spot, opening later this week in Williamsburg.

First, let’s all agree: Cherry Izakaya would make an all-time great stripper name. Instead, though, it’s this. Here’s the grand tour...



Welcome. This is the bar. Here you’ll procure Japanese whiskey (infused with sesame) and cognac (infused with shiitake) and sake (infused with nothing, but come on). Feel free to stop at this point, but not really, because...



Just up the stairs, there’s this. It’s a different situation than Manhattan’s Cherry. Less velvet, more... Williamsburg. Plus pork belly skewers and short rib and lots of things that complement sake.



Looks the same, right? Wrong. Note the private little nook at the right. That’s the VIP space. Study it. Earn it.

... Just grab a seat when no one’s looking.
