Sake Dinner at Om Restaurant on 12/5

Would you like to learn more about Sake? Though it can seem like an intimidating beverage, it is probably much easier to learn about than you think. It is also a versatile drink, with a wide variety of flavor profiles, making it very food friendly. In fact, one of the best ways to understand about Sake is to taste it with food, to see how well it interacts with a variety of dishes. If that interests you, then you should come to the upcoming Sake Dinner being held at OM Restaurant in Harvard Square, Cambridge.

The Sake Dinner will be held on Monday, December 5, at 6:30pm. You will receive Five Courses, prepared by Executive Chef Patricia Yeo, accompanied by Five Sakes and the cost is $90 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity). During the course of the dinner, I will give a lesson in Sake, providing you the basics you need to know about this fascinating and tasty brew.

You must make a reservation by calling Om at (617) 576-2800, and please tell them that I sent you. Seating is limited so if you desire to attend, please call soon.

The Sake Dinner menu will be as follows:

First Course:
