JINYA RAMEN BAR TO HOST EXCLUSIVE SAKE PAIRING DINNER
Who: Jinya Ramen
What: Washington, D.C. (October 31, 2017) – JINYA Ramen Bar is excited to announce its first Sake Pairing Dinner, complete with exclusive sake pairings poured by renowned Sake Master Christian Choi. On November 8, 2017, JINYA fans and sake enthusiasts alike are invited to enjoy a unique multi-course dining experience perfectly pairing a curated range of signature JINYA dishes with a bold selection of premium sakes that complement the flavor and aroma of the dishes.“Sake is a unique, enigmatic, and versatile beverage that can complement food just as wonderfully as wine,” said General Manager Hoang Nguyen. “Unfortunately, although sake has played a central role in Japanese life and culture for the past 2,000 years, navigating a sake list for most outside of Japan can be extremely intimidating. At JINYA, we strive to help D.C. diners demystify the world of sake by offering an extensive sake list, providing some sake education and, in the future, hosting more sake pairing dinners.”
Dinner guests will delight in four delicious courses, each paired with a hand-curated sake selected by celebrated Sake Master and “Ki Ki Sake-Shi” (Sake Sommelier) Christian Choi. As guests indulge, Mr. Choi will also be on hand to educate diners about the subtleties of the sakes and to answer any questions.Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to preview and savor the newest addition to JINYA’s cocktail menu, the Whisky Highball. This popular Japanese libation is created using a Japanese-designed Highball machine distributed by Japanese whisky brand Suntory Toki. Currently, only a handful of U.S. locations boast this sleek equipment, with JINYA Ramen Bar being the first in D.C.
JINYA’s Inaugural Sake Pairing Dinner will take place on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, with one seating at 6:00 p.m. Dinner is $55 per person (including tax and gratuity). Seating is limited. Reservations may be made at http://bit.ly/jinyadcsake or by calling 202.588.8560. To view the extensive sake selections available at the newly opened JINYA Ramen Bar in Washington, D.C., please click here.
