About Bar Goto

 & why it made the Carpe City list

  • Created by Pegu Club alum Kenta Goto, this chill, dark izakaya is one of our favorite spots in the LES.
  • No reservations, so you might have a wait.  It’s a small spot and best for groups of two to four people.
  • It has a dark, loungey feel and is pretty chill even on the busy nights which makes it a great spot for a date and quality conversation. (And not so good for food pics as you can see from that high-quality chicken wing snap above!)
  • The drinks are top-notch with an ever-changing menu of creative craft cocktails, plus wine, beer, sake and shochu.
  • You might come for the drinks and the atmosphere, but the Japanese small bites are not to be missed.
  • The miso slathered delicacies on the menu are not your average sports bar chicken wings. They are some of the best in the city.
  • We found service to be great at the bar and at the tables. Friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Get: Miso Wings, Celery and at least one of the Okonomi-Yaki dishes.
