Sake Comes To Harlem: A Cross-Cultural Pairing Dinner at Red Rooster Harlem

By admin | February 27, 2012

While Harlem may be known for its comfort food classics, it is clearly a culturally-diverse neighborhood, as well. Join us in seeing just how diverse it can really get as Nils Noren and The Gohan Society present Sake Comes to Harlem: A Cross-Cultural Pairing Dinner at Red Rooster Harlem. On Tuesday, March 6th, two distinct cultures will come together during a whimsical sake dinner pairing in one of Harlem’s newest cultural institutions- Red Rooster. This Gohan Society event will help raise money to continue the Society’s mission to advocate and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of Japan’s culture heritage in the United States.

Six courses celebrating the roots of American cuisine and the diverse culinary traditions of Harlem from the kitchen of Red Rooster, will each be paired with sake from the five breweries of Akita Prefecture, known for its rich culture, deep traditions, and natural beauty. Linda Noel Kawabata, Advanced Sake Specialist, and USA Brand Manager of ASPEC, a consortium of Akita sake brewers will be your guide to the joys and pleasures of experiencing artisanal sake in a contemporary American context.

Come experience two rich cultures all in one magical night! A very limited number of seats are available for this unique and intimate experience, so get your tickets soon. Sake Comes to Harlem will take place, Tuesday, March 6th from 6:30-9:30 at Red Rooster Harlem. Tickets are $175 each and include dinner, sake, service and gratuities. Click here to purchase tickets.
