Presented by the City of Tokyo and organized by the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau, the inaugural Eat Up Tokyo is a culinary and cultural event that will celebrate the eats, drinks and delights of Japan’s vibrant capital, bringing a taste of Tokyo to NYC.

Guests who have pre-registered via Eventbrite (kindly note that pre-registration ends 10/31) will enjoy an evening tasting-session from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, featuring stellar Japanese food and sake. Sushi will be crafted by sushi master Daisuke Nakazawa (Sushi Nakazawa), who will illustrate the principles of edo-mae sushi, the style invented in ancient Tokyo that he serves at his eponymous restaurant – a rare recipient of the most prestigious four stars from The New York Times.

Chef Kaukusaburo Sakurai (Wasan Brooklyn) will serve visually-stunning dishes inspired by top Tokyo landmarks and attractions, such as the Imperial Palace. Chef Sakurai’s offerings will be presented alongside complementary Tokyo sake pairings curated by Wasan’s resident sommelier, Toshiyuki Koizumi.

The City of Tokyo is honored to share the culinary experiences of Japan with New Yorkers, giving insight into how Tokyo dining trends have influenced local cuisine on a global scale.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with some of the city’s best chefs to bring their culinary experiences from Japan to New York City,” said Eat Up Tokyo spokesperson Nori Akashi. “New York has such a unique and thriving food scene, and it’s exciting to provide foodies with an authentic taste of Tokyo.”
