Sake Pairing Dinner at Hana Japanese

Sept. 3

Hana Chef Ken Tominaga is a master of Japanese cuisine, and a chance to eat through one of his luxe tasting menus is an event in itself.  Paired with sakes from Shirataki Shuzo, makers of premium Jozen Mizunogotoshi sake, it’s a rare opportunity to really understand the subtleties of Eastern cuisine.

On Sept. 3, 2012, Hana hosts a six course sake pairing dinner with representatives from the Japanese brewery on hand to educate diners about the subtleties of the sakes.
