Hi-Collar - ハイカラ (Hi-Collar)
Cafe during the day. Sake bar at night.
Hi-Collar earned street cred as an elegant Japanese cafe acting double duty: coffee shop (with excellent siphon coffees and great katsu sandos) by day, sake bar by night. After seven years in the East Village, the beloved kissaten (a Western-influenced Japanese coffee and tea house) has moved a stone’s throw away to more spacious new digs on 9th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Note: No espresso-based coffees here; all coffees are made by hand via different brewing methods.
