We hope you will please join Biwa, Cyril’s, and Joto Sake for a very special dinner featuring the sake of Nakao Brewery, producers of the unbelievable “Seikyo,” “Maboroshi,” and “Joto” brands of sake, as presented by sixth generation brewery president, Tsuyoshi Nakao, at Cyril’s on October 28th at 7:00.
Nakao-san will present examples of sake from each of his brands, accompanied by an over-the-top sake focused and (we hope!) very compelling coursed dinner showing off the best work from the teams at Cyril’s and Biwa (including special cheese and sake pairing from Cyril’s own Sasha Davies!)
In addition to Nakao-san, Stella Parker, Certified Sake Specialist from the highly esteemed sake importer Joto Sake, will be coordinating the pairings and will be on hand at the dinner to further discuss and help present the sake.
Founded in 1871, Nakao Brewery is located in the historic bay city of Takehara in Hiroshima Prefecture and is a specialist brewery of high quality sake as well as a renowned technological leader in the brewing world.
We are pretty sure this is going to be a very special evening and we hope that you will please join us!

In Japan, on this day for lovers, women typically give men gifts of chocolate. They probably also go out on dinner dates…
At Biwa on this greatest of holidays we will be celebrating by offering our everyday menu (like Lady and the Tramp, but with ramen...) and a handful of over the top, surf & turf, lovers night, had-the-time-of-our-life specials-for-two (2) special people in love…
Also, we will be taking reservations.
But only for parties of two…
Kina and Gabe’s interest in Japanese textiles has taken them to many interesting places, but high on the list is the gallery of Stephen Szczepanek’s Sri Threads in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. After long admiring (and occasionally buying) beautiful examples of traditionally dyed indigo cottons on Sri’s website, they were finally able to visit the gallery, and thereafter started dreaming of hosting an exhibit from the Sri collection at Biwa…
After reconnecting with Stephen in Portland during the wonderful Portland Japanese Garden show that he (along with Kei Kawasaki from Kyoto) brought together last year, the final plans were made and we are very excited to invite you to:
An Exhibit of Vintage Japanese Textiles From the Collection of Sri Threads
On display, and for sale, from May 4th through July 30th, we hope you will come and enjoy these carefully chosen examples of boro (patchwork quilting), shibori (tie dyeing), sashiko (embroidery), aizome (indigo dyeing), and kaya (hemp netting). In addition to the pieces on display, we also have a sizable number of pieces from Stephen available that we didnít have space to hang available by appointment to view or purchase. These panels, garments and utilitarian pieces are the subtly beautiful everyday textiles of prewar rural Japan.
