The izakaya approach to drinking and dining as arrived in Rockville Centre at MEET BAR & IZAKAYA.
Translated literally as "stay sake shop", izakayas are essentially Japanese taverns which are integral to the culture, food, and nightlife in Japan - they are the casual hideouts where you can linger with good friends over tasty food & plenty of cold drinks! Expect a chatty atmosphere and an upbeat energy once you enter MEET.
And when it comes to cuisine, the rules are loose and open to interpretation at izakayas - and likely a reason why their followers find them easy to love. The choices are always many: At MEET, you might try something raw, something fried, something pickled, something skewered, something simmered, or something grilled, perhaps. What ties it all together is that the choices are all tasty, drink-friendly, and meant to be shared. Come explore!
We take a modern Izakaya approach to compliment the Japanese casual dining concept.
