What better way to celebrate the Tanabata Festival than with a seven-course Omakase menu at NYC’s Sushi Seki in Hell’s Kitchen? Chef Seki’s restaurant will be pairing Dassi sake for a $220 per person (plus gratuity) feast on June 28 to celebrate the Japanese festival a few days earlier than its July 7 date this year. Tickets can be purchased at www.sushiseki.com/sakeclub .
Dassai Sake is created using a combination of tradition and cutting edge technology. The handpicked sake selection for the evening includes Dassai 39, Dassai 23, Dassai 50 Nigori, Origarami, Sparkling, Dassai Beyond, as well as a preview of a new product that will be officially unveiled at a later date. “Variety of Dassai sake such as Nigori (milky color) and Sparkling inspired us to celebrate begging of summer Tanabata with our special menu,” Chef Seki tells Couch Potato Cook in an interview. The chef says Dassai “Beyond” has a great quality of “elegance,” while Dassai 39 is “multi food friendly.”
He says good sake is high in umami. “Layers of acidity also complements many types of flavors,” Chef Seki says. “Please open your all senses of palate to enjoy each flavor.” Among his favorite dishes on the menu are the uni and toro, as well as the ankimo (monkfish liver).
Only a handful of seats are available for our annual Tanabata festival, June 28th at 7p. The evening will feature an elaborate seven-course Omakase menu prepared by renowned Chef Seki and will be paired with select sake from Dassai. ** tickets can be purchased at www.sushiseki.com/sakeclub. ** #sekisi #sushinyc #nycsushi #newyorkcity #nycfood #ues #foodporn #travelnyc #nycrestaurants #restaurantsnyc #manhattan #chelsea #hellskitchen #marriotmarquis #broadway #midtown #timessquare #lionkingbroadway #bookofmormonbroadway #w42st
