Sake Tasting Dinner @ Bar-Hayama

June 17th, 2009 No comments

Title: Sake Tasting Dinner at Bar Hayama
Location: Bar-Hayama
Sign up: Click here
Description: To kick off summer, we have arranged a special sake tasting dinner at Bar Hayama, which includes a flight of three sake and kozara (Japanese tapas) selected by owner and sake sommelier, Toshi Sugiura. In addition, our friends at Sake Social will be providing a selection of premium sake for tasting as well, to celebrate the launch of their site, We’ll try at least 6 different sake in all. We’ve negotiated a discounted price of $40 (which includes tax and tip) for our group of “sake enthusiasts” and “asian foodies.” Food alone at Bar Hayama typically runs around $50 per person, so this is a great deal! We will be dining under the stars by the outside fire pit, which is my favorite place to relax and spend a summer evening. Whether you are a novice and want to learn more about sake and try something new, or a seasoned sake drinker that can’t get enough, it will be a great night for sure!

Payment: Please bring $40 cash.
Time: 8:30pm (for those that want to come early, we’ll be having drinks at the bar).

About Bar Hayama & Toshi Sugiura:
From Los Angeles Magazine: One of the best 75 restaurants in Los Angeles (#41 to be exact) – Toshi Sugiura has created a space both quaint and sophisticated, with two intimate bars, an extensive selection of sakes (with a handy guide to their flavor profiles), and a menu highlighting kozara, or small plates. In good weather the fire pit in the garden, surrounded by communal tables, is mesmerizing.
Toshi is a Certified Sake Sommelier and founder of the California Sushi Academy.
