Beth and Dave Try: Omakase at Nola’s in Clinton
What the heck is 'omakase' and why is it so darn delicious? That's the question we try to answer on the latest episode of Beth and Dave Try.
Nola's Restaurant in Clinton and idoolocal have partnered to offer an 'omakase' experience. What does that even mean?
According to Janssen Fay, chef and co-owner at Nola's, 'omakase' is a Japanese word that means "I'll leave it up to you." We settled into the special "Chef's Seats" at the end of the bar - and let the culinary experience begin. Seven amazing courses later, we would argue that "omakase" really means "can't eat another bite."
The menu included everything from asparagus and brie on multi-grain toast with mustard, to pork belly with pea sauce, a pepper jelly short rib served with buttered corn bread, and a dessert of a ricotta panna cotta. Chef Fay explained that the menu changes each time, and can accommodate any allergies or taste preferences.
It was an amazing experience, and one we'd definitely do again. We're already thinking about when we can go back.
