Sushi and beer. That’s an odd combination that Brooklyn’s NaNa Bar offers to its patrons. If you’re in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn and you’re in the mood for some Asian cuisine and some drinks you should stop by NaNa’s Restaurant & Bar.
They offer different variations of rolls and sushi for six bucks or less. Their starters and sushi platters on the other hand are a bit steeper in price, starting at nine of those hard earned dollars. They also have soups and salads. With a different menu for any meal of the day you can mix it up if you’d like.
If you’re not there for the food and you’re just a broke-ass alcoholic, then you might be like a kid in a candy store. Everyday of the week has a specific specialty cocktail. If you happen to walk in on a Tuesday you might find yourself sipping on the Mango Mojito. If you’d like to expand beyond the daily special, there are 10 other specialty drinks and margaritas you can choose from. For nine dollars you can try the Ginger Yuzu Saketini, a blend of stoli, sake, ginger and Japanese citrus. I don’t know about you but I could fool myself into believing that that’s a healthy alcoholic drink. And if you’re a wine connoisseur, NaNa has both red and white wines for you.
When walking in a couple of nights ago, me and my friend went in there asking for some Heineken’s and were told that they don’t serve that there. We were handed a menu and chose one of the beers from their Asian imports selection. We chose the Tiger beer from Singapore which only ran us five bucks each. The place isn’t bad and I enjoyed the funky tunes being played that night. So next time your in the neighborhood, stop by. If you don’t, at least take a picture of their cool display of liquor bottles in a fish tank.
