Takami Sushi + Robata is putting the soju and sake away to pair seafood and Japanese grill-kissed beef cheeks and lamb chops with wines from Napa’s Far Niente Winery and their Nickel & Nickel Vineyard for a $59 five-course dinner. Designed by chef Stan Ota, the February 16th meal starts with wonton spoons cradling a sautéed Cajun shrimp with mango ceviche to go with Nickel’s Media Vineyards Chardonnay and another Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Cabernet later ends on Fuji Apple Muille Fuielle with far Niente’s Dolce. The full menu is below and reservations can be made at 213-236-9600.
