Premium ginjo and daiginjo sakes first started appearing on Manhattan restaurant menus around ten years ago. New Yorkers eagerly embraced the new arrivals and sake imports into the city have grown by leaps and bounds ever since.
The Joy of Sake debuted in New York in 2004 and will be held this year at The Altman Building in Chelsea. This premier venue features 14-ft. ceilings, wood floors, ambient lighting and nearly 15,000 sq. ft of event space. The No. 1 Subway’s 18th Street station is no more than fifty yards from the building’s entrance.
This once-a-year event features the world’s finest sakes in peak condition and the best in traditional and contemporary Asian cuisine. Over 300 premium sakes will be available for tasting, along with appetizers by 14 of New York’s finest restaurants. Tickets are available on-line.
