On Tuesday, March 12, Momotaro will be hosting a special dinner to welcome spring with fresh Namazake sakes and Chef Gene Kato’s new menu.
Guests will enjoy paired unpasteurized sakes from three breweries across Japan focusing on a very fresh and vibrant taste for the season while tasting dishes from Momotaro’s Executive Chef, Gene Kato. Momotaro’s sake program is among the most robust in the city with esteemed sake expert, Lindsay Ansai, at the helm. Much like the Beaujolais of the wine world, Namazakes are released in the spring and are the first and freshest offerings from a sake brewery. They are meant to be drank quickly to celebrate the ephemerality of the fleeting spring season.
There will be two seatings available for the dinner, 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $149 per person (including tax and gratuity) and can be purchased here.
