Kenichi Dallas: First Saké Festival and Second Level II Saké Expert

Kenichi Dallas is throwing a Saké Festival on April 8 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. Expand or begin your knowledge at the festival—there will be 40-50 sakes available for tasting along with light nibbles from Kenichi’s sushi bar.

More importantly, you will have the opportunity to learn from the best collection of sake experts in the country. Dig it:

Kenichi is also very proud to announce that Adam Faraizl, a Kenichi Dallas Asst. Saké Sommelier, attained Level II Saké Expert designation in February 2010 at the headquarters of the Japan Saké Brewers Association. Adam joins the community of fewer than 60 Level II Saké Experts in the world, as certified byThe Saké Educational Council (Tokyo). Adam further strengthens the Kenichi Saké Program.

Kenichi Dallas is perhaps the only restaurant in America with two Level II Saké Experts. With Kenichi Austin’s Brandi Ottesen’s attaining a Level I Saké Expert status this past January, Kenichi Restaurants now feature four certified saké sommeliers in its family–two at Level II (Hung Nguyen, Adam Faraizl) and two at Level I (Rob Albright, Brandi Ottesen).

Is this a great city or what? Make reservations. Space is limited. (214) 872-8883.

  1. That reservation phone number is 214.871.8883. Sorry that I or our marketing folks fat-fingered the wrong number in the announcement.

    Thank you.
