Yusho Japanese Grill and Noodle House at Monte Carlo will unveil a Kikusui Funaguchi sake can designed specifically for the restaurant at Yusho After Dark Tuesday, June 2.
Yusho Executive Chef Brian Lhee and SUSHISAMBA Chef Bobby Silva will treat the crowd to two creative dishes prepared just for the evening’s festivities as well as a variety of Yusho’s signature appetizers and ramen bites. A DJ spinning upbeat hip hop music will set the tone as local Las Vegas street artist, Mowgli, creates a work of art right before guests’ eyes. Wirtz Beverage Sake Director Eric Swanson will be on-hand to share tasting notes and his sake expertise with the crowd.
The largest pourer of Kikusui Funaguchi sake in the world, Yusho will be the only restaurant to carry its own personalized can. Created by Chicago artist Sarah Beacon, the can features a vibrant and whimsical design inspired by the restaurant’s modern approach to Japanese street food. A fresh sake that hasn’t been pasteurized or blended, Funaguchi has a light, rich flavor and continues to mature in the can. At 19.8 percent alcohol content, it packs a kick to get the party started.
Yusho After Dark will take place from 11 p.m. – 2 a.m. with tickets available for $25 per person at the restaurant. Included in the ticket price is one of Yusho’s signature draught cocktails and inventive dishes created by both Chef Lhee and Chef Silva. Those looking to imbibe beyond their first cocktail can enjoy a selection of specially priced cocktails, unique craft beers and premium sakes from the cash bar.
