Walk all the way to the back of Wanpaku Ramen in Greenpoint, and you’ll see a door that says “Hidden Pearl.” Behind that, you’ll find this tiny cocktail bar with a few bar seats and a couple of tables you can reserve. The cocktails here are Japanese-themed, with ingredients like yuzu and miso, and they’re very good. There’s also a menu of small plates like steamed clams and tuna on crispy rice.
