Please join Cincinnati E.A.T.S. for our Spring 2013 event on Wednesday, May 29, at Kaze for cocktails, socializing, and great food -- all for a great cause. Tickets will sell out quickly so do not delay.
HOSTS & HOSTESSES
Similar format, different location: You pay a discounted flat fee (that includes tax and tip) in advance for your meal. There are no table reservations and everyone eats together at the same time. It's a party with great food!
Drinks at 7:30 p.m. Mingle in one of OTR’s newest and most beautiful bar spaces and outdoor beer gardens, merging historic OTR architecture with contemporary Asian influence. Guests will be seated for dinner at approximately 8:30 p.m. Kaze will offer a four-course menu with accompanying wine pairings (sold separately). The menu is listed below.
To view the menu and register, please visit www.cincinnatieats.com and purchase your ticket via Paypal. Tickets are $45.00. You will make your course selections when you purchase your ticket. On the night of the event, you'll only pay for drinks.
Kaze is a Japanese Gastropub that combines three venues into one: a contemporary dining room, a hip bar/lounge, and a year-round landscaped beer garden. Jon Zipperstein and Hideki Harada co-own and operate the restaurant. Zipperstein is already a successful restaurateur in the City, with Embers in Kenwood. Harada is an experienced chef who has worked at Embers and Boca (among others). In 2009, he left the States for Japan, where he spent a few years honing his craft. After Harada moved back to Cincinnati in September 2011, he reconnected with Zipperstein. Seeing the revitalization of Over-the-Rhine, both gentlemen wanted to claim their seat at the OTR table and thought that there would be no better way than combining their talents to create a unique new restaurant in the Gateway Quarter.

PLEASE NOTE: The evening will benefit the FreestoreFoodbank. There is NO cash donation included in the ticket price. Please bring a couple canned goods at the door as a donation.
