Happy Spring to you!
Hello! Yasu here with the latest updates from Den Corner.
The last time I wrote to you was last December.
Meanwhile, 4 months flew away so quickly and Spring is now here. I hope you have been well and enjoying this gorgeous weather!
While 3 of our restaurants keeps all of us very busy, we are now gearing up for our Den Corner Annual Summer Rooftop Party. In fact, Toshi has just come back from Japan only a few days ago. He was there meeting with restaurants’ owner chefs in southern Japan who will be serving you street food at the Rooftop Party. Toshi had a wonderful experience spending time with these talented owner chefs over sake and sashimi. Whenever I called him, I could sense he was extra relaxed and happy. Makes you wonder…. When you are with good friends, everything tastes so good! These are the 15 chefs we are flying in from southern Japan.
Now, while I was holding down the fort what I did on my end was to work on inviting Denver’s own top chefs to join our summer party. And we have 6 of Denver’s talented chefs joining our event and showcasing their version of street food. We are also promoting Denver’s unknown, yet upcoming chefs.
This will be a fundraiser for non-profits – one for Japanese earthquake and the other one for the Denver’s non-profit.
Please join us if you are around. See details below!

• Visiting Japan - with a direct flight from Denver to Tokyo, Japan is now within easy access. Some of you often ask us to recommend a few great restaurants in Tokyo. I can share the list of the Top 50 - most influential list. I also personally lead a small gastronomic tour. If you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com
