This is What a Japanese Bar Menu in Griffintown Looks Like

From Eater Chef of the Year Shinji Nagai.

ICYMI, Shinji, one of the most heralded newcomers of 2014, has a bar now. As first reported in this space:

Manager Olivier Berkani (owner of the Phoenix 1 food truck) is hesitant to dub it "Bar Shinji" but admits that patrons may use the moniker to distinguish it from chef Shinji Nagai's restaurant proper.

The two spaces now share a single entrance on Notre-Dame Ouest (customers enter via the bar side). Nagai will introduce a casual, small plates bar menu in the next week or two.

And now here is that menu.
