Imagine you are able to transport yourself to Japan in an instant. You climb weathered wooden stairs to a balcony where, though there is no sign in English, a sliding door opens to reveal a ten-seat bar and the glimpse of a kitchen. The traditionally dressed chef and his wife greet you warmly as you enter this windowless cocoon of a restaurant. Around you are seated only Japanese patrons and the menu is more of a list of suggestions than anything else. No fewer than 15 sakes in a wide range of styles and prices are available. Welcome to Kappa.
