Reckless Eagle Izakaya at L&E


This May, head to Longman & Eagle for Reckless Eagle Izakaya! In a hybrid celebration of the casual Japanese pubs and the rockabilly revival (motorcycles and all) that swept Tokyo in the mid-twentieth century, the OSB will be fully transformed from Sunday, May 5 - Thursday, May 9, from 5pm-midnight. 

On the food side, Chef Max Robbins will explore the traditional robatayaki method of grilling over charcoal with a full menu of offerings like reba (chicken liver), hatsu (duck heart), tarabagani (king crab) and more. He’ll also have premium raw nigiri, oyster shooters, and hand rolls. A range of small and large bar snacks will also be available nightly including asari no sakamashi (clam and sake soup), karage (fried chicken with napa slaw), and wagyu katsu sandwiches on milk bread. 

Izakayas are pubs after all, and Longman never skimps on the drinks. Assistant bar manager Jake Dean’s menu will embody the spirit of the classic Izakaya offerings, with Sapporo Lager, Jim Beam Highballs, Japanese whisky (Hakushu 12, and Yamazaki 18), and sake, for bombing (Dassai 50 Junmai Daiginjo), and sipping (Yusho Kikisui Nama Genshu — yes, from our old neighbors at Yusho!). He’s also put together two cockails — one shaken, one stirred. The shaken is a sake-based lychee colada (Twisted White Light) and the stirred is a white boulevardier with a premium Japanese whiskey base (Waves Through Paradise). 

Join us on Sunday, May 5, for an opening party! From 8-10pm, head to OSB for the full pop-up menu of food and drinks, plus karaoke.
