Meetup Description: Who: Japanese Food & Sake Lovers.
What: Sake tasting dinner at Bar Hayama
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, www.SakeSocial.com. 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!
When: Friday, June 26, 2009 at 8:30pm (for those that want to come early, we?ll be having drinks at the bar).
Location: Bar Hayama - 1803 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90025 (Sawtelle Blvd., just south of Santa Monica Blvd. in West LA)
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.
Payment: Please bring $40 cash.
