Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar in Kīhei will host a special dinner on Thursday, March 21, featuring a contemporary “Japanese pub-style” menu paired with sake and sake cocktails.

The reception begins at 6 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. The event is limited to 40 guests. The price of $89 per person is all-inclusive – five courses, five sake, and five sake cocktail pairings, tax and gratuity. Please call 808-879-0004 for reservations.

Sansei calls the combination of sake and Japanese cuisine a “match made in heaven,” saying in its purist form, sake can bring forth the savory “umami” magic that delights chefs and diners alike.
