To commemorate the milestone occasion and celebrate its history, the restaurant will host an exclusive ticketed dinner on November 13, 2021, featuring an exceptional omakase tasting menu experience alongside an appearance and cooking demonstration from Chef Morimoto himself.

Considered the gold standard for contemporary Japanese cuisine, Morimoto Philadelphia is Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s flagship restaurant, showcasing the world-renowned chef’s native cuisine. The restaurant first opened its doors on November 13, 2001, in partnership with Stephen Starr and has continually evolved, incorporating of-the-moment flavors and modern culinary techniques while honoring ancient Japanese tradition. In a city with no shortage of high-end Japanese restaurants, Morimoto remains one of Philadelphia’s most exciting places to dine, offering a haven for food enthusiasts with diverse and discerning palates.

“When we first opened the doors back in 2001, Morimoto raised the bar for Japanese cuisine in Philadelphia, and it has remained a staple to Philadelphia’s vibrant and eclectic culinary scene ever since,” says Stephen Starr, Founder & CEO of Starr Restaurants and Morimoto. “It’s rare to find a Chef as talented as Chef Morimoto, and it’s been a true honor to partner with him for the past twenty years.”

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Morimoto will offer an exclusive, one-night-only 10-course omakase.

The menu will include throwbacks and longstanding menu favorites, such as the Miso Black Cod and Chocolate Pot de Crème, plus new items incorporating seasonal ingredients and delicacies including Perigord truffle and matsutake mushroom. The dining event will also include a special tuna breakdown demonstration showcased by Chef Morimoto himself.
