Sawanoi Brewery visits EN

Wednesday, January 18th
5:30pm ~ 10:30pm
$27 for sake flight and pairing trio

For one night only, we have the pleasure of hosting Mr. Ozawa, the President of Ozawa Shuzo, aka Sawanoi brewery, who will be visiting all the way from Tokyo.

He will be joining us for the duration of dinner service to meet and speak to anyone interested in learning more about his offerings as wel as about sake in general.

We will be featuring 3 Sawanoi selections in a flight: Daikarakuchi dry junmai, Hojo Sanjugo junmai daiginjo, and Genroku junmai kimoto. They represent varying styles of sake that will help you reaffirm how diverse this beverage can be. Paired with the sake will be a trio of EN specialties: Perigord truffle mousse, housemade karasumi bottarga, and A5 ranking Miyazaki Wagyu beef. The richness and umami paired with the sake are immensely pleasurable. Both the sake and food will only be $27 total, a very low promotional rate. Add it to your order as a starter for your meal, or join us in the bar area for a light bite.

Sawanoi is also known for being one of only 10 sake breweries in Tokyo prefecture. This is not be confused with the brewery being in "Tokyo", the ultra-metropolitan capital city. Tokyo is in fact a whole prefecture (like a state), including not just the city hub but also mountains and lakes and streams and sake breweries.

Come by the partake in this special experience!

Abe's Kitchen Counter

the last Tuesday of every month
$160 per person
limit two seatings of 8 guests

Our regular menu offers a wide array of food daily, but once a month, Chef Hiroki Abe gets to flex his culinary muscles and create a special, one-night-only menu.

Every month's menu is different depending on what is in peak season. Chef searches far and wide from the best purveyors to procure the freshest, best quality vegetables and seafood from Japan and local areas. To top it off, the service is exceptional - Abe prepares and serves each course directly in front of the guest at our open kitchen counter.

The menu from last month is available to view here. Since the menu changes every month, this is more of a sample of what is offered rather than an exact representation.

Seats can be booked only by phone 212-647-9196 ext.1
There are two seatings of 8 guests each, one at 6pm and one at 9pm.
Reservations fill up quickly, but we do keep a waitlist as well.

We have seats open for Jan 31st. Call now!
