Group Dining at YOICHI’S: 8 Course Kaiseki Meal
Join ESB members for a Kaiseki-Style Japanese Meal at Yoichi’s. Attendance is limited to 8 guests.
Kaiseki refers to a multi-course Japanese meal that is dependent on the seasonal produce. Often considered to be the haute cuisine of Japan, each course of the Kaiseki style is defined by a particular cooking method, and typical courses may include Suimono (soup), Tsukuri (sashimi), Takiawase (a simmered dish), and Shokuji (a rice course). Guests will dine as a group at the restaurant.
The cost is $150 + Tax and Tip. Guests will pay the restaurant directly with split checks, so no registration fee is needed. Wine and sake are also available by the bottle, and corkage is $30/bottle.

This quaint little house run by a husband-wife team just happens to be one of the area’s favorite spots for traditional Japanese dining. This should be no surprise, as Chef Yoichi Kawabata’s background includes cooking at Nobu Tokyo. The dining room is quiet and serene, filled with white walls and dark wood tables—there is no sushi counter. Service is both friendly and informative. The menu respects all the rules of kaiseki dining, using top seasonal ingredients and pristine, top-class fish.
