Sake Brunch at AKA Bistro on Nov.20

Would you like to learn more about Sake? One of the best ways to learn is to taste Sake with food, to see how well it interacts with a variety of dishes. So maybe you would be interested in the upcoming Sake Brunch being held at AKA Bistro in Lincoln.  

AKA Bistro garnered two wins in my Favorite Restaurants of 2010, including Favorite Brunch, Traditional Fare and Favorite New Suburban Restaurant. Presenting both French and Japanese fare, the restaurant offers many interesting and delicious dishes and I have been recommending it to everyone. I am now collaborating with AKA Bistro to present a special Sake Brunch, which may be the first of its kind in the area. This is your opportunity to taste their fare while learning about sake from me.

The Sake Brunch will be held on Sunday, November 20, at 1pm. You will receive Five Courses, prepared by Chef Chris Chung, accompanied by Five Sakes and the cost is only $55 per person. During the brunch, I will give a lesson in Sake, providing your the basics you need to know about this fascinating and tasty brew.

You must make a reservation by calling AKA Bistro at 781-259-9920, and please tell them that I sent you. Seating is limited so if you desire to attend, please call soon.

The Sake Brunch menu will be as follows:

First Course:
