Dinner at Masa will run you $450 to $600 a person, depending on the season, and while the restaurant doesn’t serve any special or rare liquors, it’s fitting that the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star sushi restaurant carries several expensive sakes and heritage wines to pair with your meal.
The menu and prices fluctuate throughout the season, but you can expect to find fine, rare sakes, such as a 10-year aged Ginjo sake from Ishikawa made by the Kikuhime brewery that costs $400 for a carafe or $1,200 for a bottle.
Masa also offers several Burgundies from Domaine de la Romanee Conti that sell for more than $2,000 a bottle, as well as Bordeaux wines that sell for $2,500 to $3,000 a bottle at this upscale Japanese restaurant. You can also order an Asian-inspired cocktail made with mid-grade vodka, gin, rum or tequila from the seasonal cocktail list, priced at $20 to $28 a glass. We like the drinks with housemade liquors, such as the fresh strawberry martini with homemade strawberry rum, St. Germain and fresh strawberries, or the lychee nigori made with house-infused lychee vodka, Masa dry sake and St. Germain.
