Martini Tasting, Vegan Dinner canceled

We’re sorry because we know some of you were much anticipating them, but we’ve had to cancel the May 17 Martini Tasting and the May 18 Vegan Sake Dinner this coming week. Not to worry, though — our regular non-vegan Sake Dinner for Wednesday, May 25, is still on! If you haven’t signed up yet, call now at 216.481.9635 to make your prepaid reservation. It’s going to be a feast for every fan of Asian cuisine and fine sakes.

Sake pairings for our Vegan Sake dinner are ready!

The pairings for our Vegan Sake Dinner are now up here. What makes a sake vegan? You might wonder; we did. The difference between a regular sake and a vegan sake is in the use (or more specifically, non-use) of two ingredients in its production: lacto-sugar (which comes from milk) and gelatin. At this dinner, we’re pairing an array of vegan Asian dishes with a variety of vegan sakes to create the ultimate vegan Asian feast. Don’t miss it!
