About this Event

Yume Sushi is opening its doors for a one-night only Open Kitchen D.C. curated event featuring freshly imported tuna from Japan. Chef Peter’s passion for tuna is undeniable. In fact, it is so strong, he has a bluefin tattooed on his forearm! The tuna used will be remotely selected from among freshly caught tuna at a Japanese market and imported via cool (but never frozen) shipments. The chef will demonstrate over the event how he filets the tuna and selects different cuts for a variety of sushi that will be prepared for guests.

Attendees will enjoy some of the best sushi in the DMV during a five-course Omakase (chef selected) feast that features the freshly carved tuna in a variety of dishes including Chef Peter’s signature, “The Winner”, a tower of foie gras, unagi, tuna rose and caviar served with garlic ponzu and carpaccio sauce. The evening will conclude with a black sesame “birds nest” for dessert. Guests will go home with a custom recipe, spices, and a gift certificate to use when returning to Yume Sushi.

Chef Peter grew up in his mother’s restaurant in Thailand and was first exposed to Japanese cuisine when he moved to the U.S. as a teen. From the moment when he tasted his first bite of sushi he was fascinated by the artistry and complexity of this unfamiliar food and sought to study under a Japanese Iron Chef who became his mentor. As part of his training, he learned to expertly carve 400 pound tunas and now uses this skill daily to fillet a variety of fish at his restaurant where he works alongside his wife, Cici.
