Katsu Los Gatos Restaurant Opens Offering the Ultimate Bay Area Dining Experience

It seats 72 guests and offers a Chef's Table exclusive- an Omakase experience for up to 20 people. Both the a la carte and Omakase menus feature globally inspired Japanese cuisine.

In the holiday spirit, a portion of the opening event proceeds will be donated to Hurricane Sandy victims. A direct donation will be made to the New York Mayor's Fund, earmarked for the New York Food Truck Association, which provides immediate meals to some of the hardest hit areas.

At the kitchen's helm is Chef Katsuhiko Hanamure (Katsu), who was personally trained and mentored by famed chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa (Nobu). Most recently, Katsu was executive chef of Matsuhisa Athens, Matsuhisa Mykonos, and Nobu at Badrutt's Palace Hotel in St. Moritz.

"Los Gatos is a first-class location for the signature dining experience that Katsu will provide," says Derek Schuette, General Manager. "Whether ordering Omakase or a la carte, the food is an enlightening balance of beauty and taste, featuring unique, fresh, quality ingredients, juxtaposing traditional Japanese flavors with brilliant, modern cuisine." The Omakase menu entrusts Chef Katsu to create dishes specifically for diners such as spotted prawn with caviar, oyster wrapped in phyllo, yellow tail sashimi with jalapeno, or a uni champagne shooter.

A Chef Katsu signature dish is the Decadence Staircase, featuring Russian Sevruga, Osetra, Golden Osetra Caviar and premium Beluga caviar, descending along bamboo "stairs." Bar Manager, Josh Schulenberg's innovative Spirits' Program explores new directions for handcrafted cocktails and drinks. Whether he's using Japanese sea salts or exotic fruits, Schulenberg continually pushes the boundaries of conventional mixology.

Top-shelf and rare, hard-to-find spirits include Glenmorangie Pride Scotch, Yamakazi Whiskey, Diaka, and Flying Pegasus Sake, of which only 300 bottles are produced annually, with Katsu securing six bottles.

For the late night crowd, Katsu's urbane ambience gets injected with New York style late night dining, unlike anything in the Bay Area scene, replete with an impressive modern digital art display, and a professional sound system.
