It's been three months since Glaze by Sasa opened in Congress Park as the reworked sushi and dessert bar born out of the former Glaze Baum Cake Shoppe, in partnership with Sushi Sasa. Now the new concept has a liquor license, and has taken advantage by adding beer, wine, and sake to its offerings, in addition to Japanese small plates, sashimi and nigiri, and—of course—desserts.
Though Glaze by Sasa made do without a liquor license by serving a range of teas, coffee, and espresso drinks, it can now complement its cuisine with something a little stiffer. The list includes traditional Japanese beers like Asahi, Sapporo, and Kirin; featured sake—starting off with five from Manotsuru on Japan's Sado Island; plus wine: three reds, three whites, and a prosecco, all available by the glass or bottle.
And while the eatery is currently set up with a full liquor license, look for cocktails and mixed drinks to come later.
