Executive Chef Bryan Emperor, who has studied the art of Japanese cuisine for over twenty-five years, helming some of the top restaurants world-wide, will create six courses of sushi and sashimi, including Wagyu Croquettes and Tasmanian King Salmon Sashimi, followed by Japanese dessert and tea. Guests can enjoy the full omakase menu for $40 per person (excluding tax and gratuity). Seatings will begin at the top of every hour at the eight-seat counter, on a first-come, first-served basis and reservations will not be accepted.
