Omakase (Tasting Menu) in KAZ’s Tasting Parade
The chefs at Kaz Sushi Bistro create the impromptu 8 course menu featuring unique dishes (6 original small dishes, sushi & dessert) for $85 and up (Reservations Recommended).
In Japanese cuisine, tasting menus are called omakase which traditionally, the chef designs the menu for you, based on the very best ingredients available. Kaz Sushi Bistro
is one of DC’s most popular and well-regarded sushi destinations due to veteran chef, Kazuhiro “Kaz” Okochi
, who has a reputation for composing beautifully crafted fresh seafood. There is no set menu for the omakase, it’s up to the chef, but dishes have included spicy sea scallop sashimi, tuna Napoleon, Hramasa or wild Yellowtail, house-smoked fatty Norwegian herring with Japanese cucumbers, miso-marinated salmon, braised short ribs with sweet potato puree, nigiri and panna cotta dessert.
If you’re really feeling adventurous and hungry, you can order the Ultimate Sushi meal where the sushi chefs will serve you the best of what they have and won’t stop until you say “Enough”. The Ultimate Sushi experience is priced a la carte. Both tastings do not require reservations; however, but they are strongly recommended as they are only served at the Sushi Bar. Yet another reason to fulfill your sushi fix.
