JASSW Features Japanese Sake

The Japan-America Society of the State of Washington (JASSW) held a Celebrate Washoku series event featuring Japanese sake at 415 Westlake on May 23. Participating vendors introduced sake to locals and business representatives and shared ideas on how to match it with cuisines from around the world. Nik Virrey of Naka Restaurant, who was voted the Seattle’s best bartender in 2015, also joined the event. The JASSW’s next event will be “Salmon Meister” on June 25 featuring the local salmon industry and business between Japan and Alaska.
