The Group name "Itadakimasu"   literally means “I humbly receive (this meal).”   It is used to show gratitude for the food.  A more informal translation equates it with "Let's Eat!" or "Bon Appetite". 

The Itadakimasu Meet-Up Group is for all people who enjoy Japanese culture and tradition especially as it is expressed through food.  We will have lunch and dinner meetings with food ranging from very traditional fare, social foods such as izakaya (pub food) and contemporary offerings.  Sushi and Sashimi are part of most Japanese meals but there is much more to enjoy as well .  We will have themed meals, visit local restaurants and do potluck parties. 

If you enjoy Japanese food (or would like to try it) we hope you can join us at our next event.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
