OMAKASE, which is short for omakase shimasu, means “I’ll leave it up to you.” While in the U.S. it’s sometimes mistakenly interpreted as a sushi tasting menu, a true omakase is when a chef prepares course after course à la minute, creating each dish based on the guests’ reactions throughout the entire experience. WAKUDA heightens the omakase tradition with a dining experience that is truly a first in the city. Part world-class precision and part artistic intuition, the WAKUDA chefs create menus each evening that set the stage for an unexpected culinary journey. With only eight seats, each guest will have a truly personalized, exclusive experience.
Offering the apex of the culinary journey, the exclusive omakase experience is based on the words, omakase shimasu, which means “I’ll leave it up to you.” Each magnificent offing is based on the chef observations and reacting to your whims and pleasures.
