Azasu – 49 Clinton Street, New York, NY 10002
Admission: $40 [includes buffet, two drink tickets (for beer, basic cup sake, or soft drinks), and unlimited shochu]
Celebrate the New Year at The Gohan Society and Kampai.US for a Shinnenkai (“New Year Gathering”) at Azasu, a Lower East Side izakaya that specializes in Japanese comfort food such as chanko nabe, yakisoba, kushiage, chicken karaage, and pork gyoza. Shochu expert Stephen Lyman of Kampai.US, a website devoted to introducing Japanese izakaya dining and shochu to Westerners, will describe shochu and how it pairs with the food that will be served. Unlimited shochu is made possible by a donation from Wismettac.
The Gohan Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering a better understanding of Japan’s rich culinary heritage, is partnerning with Kampai.US in association with the Japanese Sake and Shochu Makers Association to introduce shochu through seasonal food pairing dinners and other shochu-related events throughout New York City.
