Any great Asian fusion or Japanese places near Ridgewood WITH a bar?

Looking for a place that has good sushi or Japanese fusion but that has a bar. Any ideas?

Also PS if you go to Mantra you MUST get the sesame paneer for an appetizer. It is a very firm paneer, and it is in wedges that are fork-firm, slathered with a mildly spicy, very sweet barbeque type sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. My husband and I order it every time and it never gets old. My kids even love it.

The Phaal was completely doable for me. I went with three other people doing it tho and nobody else got past the first couple bites. I have a crazy palette tho - I can eat crazy spicy stuff without much fanfare. The people I went with couldn't even get halfway through so I guess it is pretty hot. Have to say tho - my favorite Indian (including NYC with possible exception of Dhaba in NYC) is Mantra in Paramus. Very nice flavor plus they have added music into their lounge and it is actually pretty vibey now!

Whoa that place looks cool - I have never heard of it! Thanks! Flirt would be totally perfect if it had a bar. Oh well..meanwhile i would travel to other towns like Hoboken, Hackensack, Rutherford, Englewood etc...if the place had the wow factor. Thanks guys!

I don't feel like trekking into NYC but I want to have an interesting cocktail, some quasi-exotic or interesting food, but I have already done Chakra, Varka, Mantra etc..a thousand times. Anybody have any ideas of other places that have that vibe? I looked at Rare steakhouse in Little Falls, but it is a bit of a haul from Ridgewood. Any ideas? Has anyone been to any new places lately with a great bar scene and interesting atmosphere/food?

Yes Brick Lane is a chain and the one in
Ridgewood does not have a bar - that is one thing I look for is a place with good cocktails. Funny enough, I entered the Man Vs. Food Phaal Curry Challenge at the Brick Lane Curry House in Ridgewood and I actually finished! lol

Looking for hip atmospheric ethnic (Asian/Indian/Ecclectic/Middle Eastern) place to dine with a bar and a cool scene - but something with an exotic flair. Any ideas?

My tastes seem to run to Indian/Asian/Middle Eastern, but I also like a good bar/lounge scene. Have been there done that with Illi (which I LOVED), Junoon, Tamarind, Dhaba, Kittichai, and Spice Market and Buddakan (which I DON'T like in terms of the food) Any suggestions of something that we haven't tried? We tried Asiate last weekend and were disappointed.
