GG Tokyo, the hidden jewel box-sized izakaya known for its lively vibe, in the Park South Hotel is balanced by a sushi counter bar top, where Beverage Director Ivan Papic (Pastis and Balthazar, Macao Trading Company, the sister bar to Employees Only,and Paul’s Casablanca) and Head Bartender Sasa Radovanovic (Schilling NYC and Paul’s Casablanca) create classic cocktails with a Japanese twist. The kitchen and bar are open late!
The buzzing cocktail bar, inspired by the energetic and bustling Golden Gai district in Tokyo, serves up late-night bites that perfectly accompany your nightcap drinks. The innovative Japanese-inspired dishes, conceptualized for sharing with a group of friends, include a raw bar, Tuna Tartare, a twist on the classic made with tuna in tonnato sauce with fried capers and garlic bread; Okonomi-yaki, a Japanese pancake made with ramen noodles, topped with mayo, apples, and bonito—dried tuna that appears to move; and Miso-maple Salmon,served with potato pancakes, lime yogurt, and ikura.
