Nombe August 18th - Masumi Sake Tasting & Pairing at Nombe

On August 18th, Nombe Restaurant and Sake Sommelier Gil Payne invite you to experience the amazing sakes of the Miyasaka Family of Suwa, Nagano, makers of the Miyasaka and Masumi Brand sakes. This 10th Generation sake clan has the distinction of having their own proprietary yeast declared a landmark classic yeast (Number 7) by the country's national brewer's association, and this yeast is widely used by sake makers throughout Japan. The quality and craftsmanship of Masumi's sakes is truly exceptional, and we are proud to display them with the following special dishes prepared by Chef Balla:
  • Grilled Ribeye with Sake-Kasu
  • Heirloom Tomato Salad with Shiso
  • Dried Grilled Squid
  • Marinated Hearts of Palm
Masumi's Nanago, Yuedomo, and Yamahai Ginjo will be featured, in addition to the Miyaska Yamahai 50 brand. We will also have a secret welcome sake to greet diners coming for this special pairing. The cost is $50 per person inclusive, and reservations can be made via OpenTable. Visit for further details.
