On Friday, June 6, Silk restaurant, 919 Peachtree Street in the Metropolis building, hosts a Kaiseki dinner, a one-of-a-kind culinary adventure that is rooted in ancient Japanese tradition. The seven-course meal with wine pairings begins at 7 p.m., and costs $125 per person, plus tax and gratuity.
Kaiseki is an Asian culinary art form that dates back to the 1700’s, when elaborate and beautiful tea ceremonies were performed to entertain and welcome guests. During these ceremonies, a series of beautifully presented, small meals featuring the freshest ingredients were served. Silk’s executive chef Kochi Chiba, voted by USA Today as one of the top three Kaiseki masters in America, will personally design his exclusive kaiseki menu after an educational trip to Japan where he will research new ideas and select his seasonal ingredients.
Silk requires reservations for the dinner which is limited to 20 people. Call (678) 705-8888 to reserve a space. Visit www.silkrestaurant.com for more information.
