The third annual Omakase event returns this October 2 – 6, at Hiroshi Japanese Gourmet restaurant in the prestigious Hotel Mousai located on the Garza Blanca Preserve. Each year prominent Master Sushi Chefs are invited to co-create alongside Resident Head Chef, Carlos Leyva to invent a unique and unforgettable culinary moment. This year the esteemed Master Chef Hiroshi Shima of Sushi Roku, Hollywood, has accepted the challenge to take Asian fusion to new levels.
This innovative gastronomy is cultivated from the premise of “omakase,” a Japanese word that holds the meaning “to trust in someone.” It is a common descriptor on menus throughout Japan’s high-end restaurants leaving the meal selection in the hands of the chef as diners choose to trust their selections. This style of culinary freedom allows expert chefs to choose from the freshest and most available ingredients and gives them the creativity to pioneer the moment and serve up something truly exceptional.
You are invited to an exclusive dining extravaganza on the nights of October 4, 5 and 6 where only two sittings at 6:30 and 8:30 pm will permit 40 guests each. As spaces are quite limited to allow precision and excellence in both the menu and service, it is necessary to make reservations in advance as you do not want to miss this memorable exploration of flavor.
The cost for the Omakase Menu is $129 USD, per person. This includes a fantastical journey through multiple courses which will blend the essence of the sea with contemporary culinary styles and pair each dish with a complimentary cocktail.
If you are a member of either Garza Blanca or Hotel Mousai, embrace the full event and arrive early for the exclusive kick-off on October 2, at the Orange Deck. Here you will have the opportunity to meet the chefs and get a first-hand look at how imagination and inspiration combine to ignite a passion for epicurean expression.
On October 3, an intimate workshop for only 20 guests will be held on the terrace in the Hiroshi restaurant. Here beverage coordinator, Antonio Torres, will introduce the finer details of sake including prized labels, customs and etiquette, types of distillation and gourmet cocktail recipes. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served along with the tasting. Guests on the European Plan can enter for $45 USD. If you are on the All-Inclusive Plan, the price is $30 USD.
Place your reservations for the week to ensure a seat at all the key events and explore the best of Japanese gastronomy in wildly imaginative execution.
