Zama Rolls Out A New Chef’s Tasting Menu

ZamaJapanese sushi restaurant Zama announces a new tasting menu to premiere at their Rittenhouse Square location.

Chef Hiroyuki “Zama” Tanaka is known for fusing Japanese culture and culinary traditions with modern, local flavors through his a la carte sashimi and extensive variety of sushi offerings. The new menu though?

The new tasting menu will be offered for dinner every week Monday-Sunday at $125 per person–which might seem pricey until you take a look at what Zama is offering. The menu looks both expansive and kinda amazing.

And lucky for you, we’ve got a copy. Check out a sneak-peak at the opening version of the new  tasting menu below.
