Sapporo Reopens With Redesigned Space And New Dishes

Sapporo 49th St btw. 6th and 7th Aves

Early in June, we mentioned that Sapporo (on 49th btw. 5+6th) would be closed til mid-June. Well, they’re back open- with slightly higher prices and a completely redesigned space.  This is actually the second time in 5 years they’ve done this, but this time the changes are a bit more noticeable… and they’ve added some new lunch specials.  Check out pics of the new digs plus the new lunch specials, after the jump.

Sapporo redesigned space

The weird space dividers that ran down the middle of the room? Gone!  But check out the new “booths” up against the wall.  Fancy!  The room is definitely brighter and less cluttered.  (Although we always felt like the relative dinginess of Sapporo, compared to Menchanko Tei or Men Kui Tei, was part of its charm.)

Sapporo new lunch specials

Thankfully the lunch additions all fit nicely within our $10 lunch budget. I’ll definitely be back for the Katayaki Soba cause I kinda need to try the mysterious-sounding “special seafood ANKAKE sauce”. Has anybody tried any of the new dishes yet?  Let us know in the comments…
