Bar Chuko, the izakaya spinoff of popular Prospect Heights ramen spot Chuko, is now open to the public. The new place, which has been in the works for over a year, finally opened quietly on Wednesday, just down the block from the original. Instead of ramen, the menu here focuses on Japanese bar food, including a long list of yakitori skewer. A peek at Bar Chuko's instagram shows dishes like pork jowl yakitori, bacon wrapped mochi, chicken meatball-stuffed shishito peppers, and crispy rice cakes with bolognese sauce. Also on the menu are raw dishes like oysters and spicy tuna, an okonomiyaki with bacon, toasted rice congee, and chicken ramen. The bar serves beer, wine, sake, and whiskey, plus a variety of shochu cocktails. Check out the full menus after the jump:

Note that Bar Chuko's hours are no longer as printed on the menu: the bar is open from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

Next up, owners Jamison Blankenship, David Koon, and James Sato (all Morimoto vets) are working on opening a new Chuko outpost in Bushwick. That one was slated for a spring opening, but like Bar Chuko, looks to be taking longer than anticipated.
