Last night June 21st, I attended the opening party of Minami Restaurant in Yaletown.
Seigo Nakamura was on hand to greet guests and speak as he welcomed guests to his 2nd restaurant in Vancouver, his company also owns 8 restaurants in Japan. Minami is named after his youngest daughter. This restaurant mixes his love for Japanese food and art and they want to become the leading restaurant in the city with the largest selection of Sake.
The cocktail list was curated by well known local barman Shaun Layton and Pacific Pimm’s cocktails were served along with wine and sake throughout the evening.
Guests mingled over delicious canapés all selections of their extensive menu that not only features their Aburi Sushi, there was also a wonderful refreshing soba noodle salad and other tasty bites.
Minami Restaurant is located at 1118 Mainland Street in Yaletown and is open daily for lunch and dinner. You can find them on twitter @MinamiYaletown
