Think: a tostada with cucumber, ahi, and seaweed

Do you love Japanese and Mexican cuisine? That’s the name of the game for Omakase Por Favor, an upcoming Sacramento restaurant that combines Japanese cooking with the flavors of Mexico.

While Omakase isn’t expected to open until 2023, its creator Chef Jeanna Marie Pecha is providing Sacramentans a taste of what’s to come.

On Fri., Oct. 28, Jeanna is holding a four-course tasting menu from 6-8 p.m. at Bailarin Cellars in downtown. Here are two plates that caught our eye:

  • A tostada with cucumber, ahi, and seaweed alongside a pour of 2018 Mila Cabernet Sauvignon 🐟
  • A cheesecake with sesame crumble and mint and a glass of 2019 Bacigalupi 🍰

Like it haute? Grab a reservation or two.
