Un'occasione speciale per cui festeggiare? Prenota l'intero tavolo
Hi! My name is Ai. I grew up in Japan, helping my mother in the kitchen ever since I was a little kid, watching and learning as she cooked away. My food reflects my background and roots, looking back fondly at meals I created with my mom, as well as reflecting the experiences I've had over years of traveling around the U.S. and the world. My dishes are Vegetarian and/or Pescaterian. My husband Mat and I built a small farm on our loft rooftop a few years ago and we grow many of the vegetables, greens and herbs I use in the cooking, including the Japanese staple herb, shiso! I select other choice ingredients at the green markets and other quality sources around NYC and beyond. We are very conscious about food, the environment and health. Our tasty meals are well balanced and full of pronounced and subtle flavors. Flavor and nutrition is what it's about and should not be mutually exclusive. If you want to experience a unique flavor palette and quality ingredients, then this is the place! Please send me a message if you would like to setup private party. Here is my facebook page to follow upcoming events and view more pictures! https://www.facebook.com/ajitofood
Production as hobby and Food as a life!
Come sarà l'esperienza a casa di Ai
Ai’s Seafood Tasting Menu in Brooklyn was a lovely evening. There were at least 11 courses each unique and tasty. They ranged from a baked miniature butter nut squash with flan filling as a starter to the final grape granté in three flavors followed by an éclair. Each course was served presentation forward and was a delicious blend of new flavor combinations. Most courses featured fresh seafood. Lots of things to inspire one’s own creations. The other dinner companions were interesting, the conversation lively and it was a lovely evening. I would highly recommend this experience.
We had a fabulous evening with Ai. The food was perfectly cooked, delicious and unique, our hosts explained the food and from where it was sourced, and the guests were an interesting mix of friendly people - local New Yorkers and travelers together. I highly recommend this experience and would eat with Ai again. Thank you!
Fantastic, Ai's home is unlike any NYC home I've seen, and I love every deliberate attention to detail not just in the space, but especially the food. We were chatting with fellow diners by the end of it and unianmously sometimes silent for our first tastes in whichever course was coming. Highly recommended for any seafood lovers!
