Monday, July 13, 2015 – Doors open 6:30 p.m.; Dinner pairing begins at 7:00 p.m.

$95.00 including tax+tip ($85.00 for The Gohan Society Members)

Sponsored by The Gohan Society and Kampai.US, Gohan+Shochu Summer Tasting Night features 5 courses from Bara Executive Chef Ian Alvarez plus 5 shochu pairings selected by shochu specialist Stephen Lyman.

Chef Alvarez, formerly of Momofuku, fuses Japanese and French flavors at Bara, which opened at the end of last year. Lyman, who runs Kampai.US, a comprehensive English-language guide to shochu, will explain each shochu as it’s served with each course.

This is the first in a series of four seasonal tastings presented by Kampai.US and The Gohan Society. Shochu is popular in Japan with young Japanese people because the distilled beverage contains less sugar and has fewer calories than other types of alcohol. The Gohan Society and Kampai.US want to introduce one of Japan’s favorite beverages to New Yorkers who are more familiar with sake.
