If you're a whisky aficionado, The Arthur J has the perfect treat for you: a once-in-a-lifetime Japanese whisky tasting matched with a six-course dinner at the restaurant.
The experience with Suntory Whisky will take place on Tuesday, March 28, beginning with a welcome reception at 6:45 p.m. Tickets to the event cost $650 per guest, which includes tax and gratuity.
Japanese whisky has been in the spotlight in recent years due to a renewed interest in and respect for the tradition and strong commitment to perfection. Guests are invited to "delve into the refined sensibility of the Japanese art of blending" as used by the masters of Suntory Whisky.
The evening will begin with a traditionally prepared Japanese highball cocktail and welcome aperitifs followed by a six course component
tasting dinner. The first five courses will feature ultra rare barrel
samples that highlight the ingredients of the award-winning Hibiki
blend, culminating with Suntory's award winning Hibiki 17yr.
The six-course menu was specially designed for the occasion by Chef David LeFevre, Chef de Cuisine Daniel Waked, and Executive Pastry Chef Uyen Kirshenbaum.
The menu will include:
Bay Scallop, Oro Blanco, Chestnut Honey, Puffed Barley
Buttery Alaskan King Crab, Meyer Lemon, Vanilla, Chamomile
Yamazaki-Mizunara (Japanese Oak)
Coconut Butter Pork Confit, Caribbean Spiced Gastrique
Chilean Sea Bass, Gingered Eggplant, Katsuo Dashi
Squab Roasted on the Bone, Clove Orange Glaze, Brown Butter, Squab Jus
Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Frosting, Gooey Caramel, Candied Walnuts
