Tonight’s opening night for Bar Goto, the izakaya at 245 Eldridge St. Kenta Goto, formerly of Pegu Club, is behind the cocktail bar and Japanese small plates restaurant in the former Zoe space.

Last week, Zagat reported the place would pay “homage to (the) food and drink (Goto) grew up eating in Tokyo.” Drinks include a “take on a Tom Collins called the Yuzu-Calpico Fizz.” The food menu includes items such as miso wings and several versions of okonomiyaki (the Japanese pancakers stuffed with seafood, vegetables, pork, etc.)

New York Magazine says Bar Goto “may be the closest thing New York has seen to a Japanese-style cocktail bar since Angel’s Share arrived 20 years ago.”
