Manga: Nobunaga no Chef
Both main characters use food/drink to communicate a deeper meaning.

Manga: Namikibashi-doori Aoba Jitensha-ten
Both revolve around a main character or location and then tell the story of the person through various short stories. If you liked the style of storytelling with Namiki, you'd definitely like Bartender as well.

Manga: Bonnouji
Both stories are slow paced, with likable characters who have warm and fuzzy interactions that will make you smile.

Manga: Shinya Shokudou
Both Shinya Shokudou and Bartender have main characters who embrace both its characters, and the reader in a very warm, and almost family-like way. In each of these great manga, you really feel the soul of each person who walks through the doors of the shop in each respective manga, and from both these manga, you learn about life and all of its shortcomings, and how to sail past them. I sincerly recommend Bartender, if you liked Shinya Shokudou.

Manga: Sommelière
Very similar stories both written by Araki Yoh.
They both have the same theme (alcohol) and the same structure of a prodigy teaching people valuable lessons through alcohol.
