What Is Kaiseki?
Kaiseki Ryori is the ultimate form of Japanese dining experience.
There are two ways to write Kaiseki. 懐石 and 会席. ‘懐石 Kaiseki’ translates to “stone in stomach,” from origin of buddhist monks to put warm stones in their robes during ascetic practice outdoors.
Over a thousand years ago, the tradition of ‘精進料理 Shojin-Ryori’ (monks’ vegan cuisine,) evolved into the tea ceremony,
incorporating ‘懐石料理 Kaiseki-Ryori’ (often called 茶懐石 Cha-Kaiseki, meaning tea kaiseki, to differentiate.)
Typically, it is a simple meal served before a tea ceremony, consisting of rice, soup, and a few side dishes.
‘会席Kaiseki,’ which we serve at Suzuki,
translates to “gathering seats.” This newer concept started toward the end of 18th century (Edo period,) as tea ceremony evolved and made available for the general population, and the purpose of the meal had shifted from ceremonial to celebratory. A typical meal comes in many courses, featuring seasonal ingredients, often enjoyed with saké.
At Suzuki, we set the menu to the Post Modern Meiji era, when Japan started to import goods from Europe and America.
We will be serving Kaiseki exclusively at the Rose Room Starting January 2019
