Fort St. George is a curious Japanese restaurant hidden above a vintage video game store in a multi-use building. The food is cheap, and not necessarily Japanese (unreasonable portions of spaghetti are the main attraction). And the bar—whose vibe is reminiscent of the noodle bar scene from Blade Runner, with elderly Japanese grandmas punctuating the bar stools between both hipsters and construction workers—is well-stocked with shochu, which generally shows up via a hefty four-ounce pour.
