Update: Due to rain on June 16, this was rescheduled to June 23
Few foods elicit sheer bliss in me the way sushi does. Squid, eel, yellowtail, shari rice, nori wrappers, wasabi(!) – the list of what I love about sushi goes on and on. And my favorite part? When the artists behind the sushi get creative. As refreshing as a basic California roll is (and I’d have one any day of the week), I love to be challenged by a crazy handrolled creation.
That’s why I was really excited to learn and share about Emerging Chefs’ next event:
Sushi @ Sunset on June 23
As with all Emerging Chefs events, David Moss, Rick Turner and Michael DeAloia have tapped the talents of one of Cleveland’s culinary creatives – Chef Daniel Cassano, the Executive Chef at Sushi Rock – to put together yet another adventurous menu that will dare the tastebuds.
However, the food is not the only thing I look forward to eating up at Sushi @ Sunset. Taking advantage of Cleveland’s beautiful summer, Emerging Chefs will be heading outdoors and throwing this dinner party on the rooftop of the historic Federal Knitting Mills building.
With a 360 degree view of the city, guests will be able to enjoy a breathtaking lakefront sunset while dining on the surf and turf Chef Cassano’s imagination cooks up. I can’t wait to see how Chef Cassano will take inspiration from the venue and the view as previous Emerging Chefs have.
Since last week’s Mardi Gras en Mai, tickets for Sushi @ Sunset have been selling fast so I wouldn’t recommend waiting. Although the Chef’s Table has already sold out, you can still get tickets for $55 at:
And after you get tickets for Sushi at Sunset, mark your calendars for their Summer White Party with Chef Reagan Reik from Pier W. On July 16th, Emerging Chefs will be putting together a dazzling pop-up restaurant and lakeside lounge for one evening where Chef Reik will offer up “a unique twist to summer culinary fare.” I’ll post more info about tickets as I get them, but save the date now.
