My team (Nathan or Giulia) or I will welcome you into our own restaurant with some unique Japanese drinks as an aperitif while we talk about sake and wagyu, explaining the history, relevance, and regional differences between them. Then we will move onto the wagyu full-course meal. We source different types of wagyu from many regions in Japan, and we will serve you the best cuts available in the market for the experience date. You'll get to try traditional & authentic styles of preparation as well as some more modern dishes, along with some delicious appetizers and dessert. For each wagyu dish, we will serve you Japanese craft sake prepared in a different way. Some of them are our original cocktails specifically designed to be paired with wagyu. Example of the wagyu full-course dinner menu: Two kinds of appetizers Grilled wagyu beef tongue - original sake cocktail Wagyu chuck flap tataki - warm sake Seasonal salad Wagyu sirloin steak - nigori Wagyu chuck hotpot - unpasteurized sake Wagyu dashi udon Dessert - sake with a surprise It is not our goal to overfeed you but to serve you high quality of wagyu in many ways. We understand the price of this experience is higher compared to others, but it is a function of how much real wagyu and good craft sake cost.
I am a restaurant owner from Gifu, where one of the best wagyu beef brands is from. I grew up eating wagyu in my hometown and now in Tokyo, and I have been in the food industry for more than 5 years. As a certified sake sommelier, I am passionate about wagyu and sake pairings. Through this experience, my team and I serve different cuts of high-quality wagyu in many ways in order to maximize the natural flavor of wagyu. All of the dishes are paired with craft Japanese sake, also served in a variety of ways (cold, warm, and cocktails).
