Mess Hall
703 Edgewood Street Northeast

Japanese Blowfish (aka Fugu aka Pufferfish) is one of the most celebrated and notorious dishes in Japan. It is very seasonal, and only available in the winter months. Mess Hall will source 3 fish for an evening of discussion, and different taste preparations including sashimi. This is a one-time, small-group event. What to expect: Chef Nobu Yamazaki, Michelin Star Chef and co-owner of Sushi Taro will discuss Fugu’s deadly history, its mystique, folklore, biology, sourcing, and various preparation techniques, all while breaking down the fish live in a small group setting. Laura Hayes, Food Editor for Washington City Paper, will facilitate the discussion during this unique event and will assist with an interactive Q&A throughout. You will enjoy rare dishes such as soup made from dried Fugu fin, and sashimi. Tickets are $90. The event is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. To purchase a ticket, click here.
