We are excited to announce that acclaimed chef Hiroki Odo is teaming up with Brooklyn Kura – New York’s first sake brewery – for a one-night-only sake pairing tasting dinner on Thursday, May 31st at the brewery’s industrial-chic space in Industry City, Brooklyn. The tasting will be a sneak peek of the bar offerings from chef Odo’s upcoming restaurant concept, odo | HALL (opening soon!).
Prepared by chef Odo, formerly the executive chef at Michelin-starred Kajitsu, the special five-course tasting dinner will showcase seasonal and local New York ingredients thoughtfully crafted with his Japanese-inspired flair.
Each course will be paired with Brooklyn Kura’s American craft sake, each of which is produced on-site at the Industry City brewery using four deceptively simple ingredients—American-grown rice, koji, Brooklyn water and yeast. Chef Odo and Brooklyn Kura share a passion for blurring the lines between Japanese traditions and American experimentation – they’re thrilled to bring their creations together for this special evening.
Brooklyn Kura’s resident sake sommelier, Sam Barickman, will be pouring the brewery’s signature offerings, plus a few special surprises and tap room exclusives, including sake served at various points during the fermentation process.
There will be two dinner seatings at 6:30pm and 9:00pm, and tickets are $130 per person with sake pairing.
