A PRE-OPENING HOLIDAY SPECIAL : Celebrate the Holidays at Soon-to-Open MINORI Craft Japanese Tavern

Many will scratch their heads at the mention of MINORI Craft Japanese Tavern, but rest assure, it will be one of the places to go this holiday season.

 

Located at the former Tsukada Nojo space along Kalakaua Avenue (near the Hawaii Convention Center), the restaurant itself is slated to open in February of 2019. In the meantime, starting December 5 through 30, 2018, MINORI will host a month of reservations-only holiday parties and dinner as well as bento orders to-go—perfect for those that love to try the newest spot in town.

Holiday Party Courses, available Friday – Sunday, 5:00 – 10:00 PM

Celebrate the season Japanese-style with two distinct Holiday Party Courses offered: The Nabe Party and the Yakiniku Party. Ideal for parties of four or more, the Holiday Party Courses are not about ordering one of everything off of an extensive menu; it’s about sharing the same set of food, family style and enjoying the company of friends and family.

The Nabe Party (minimum 4 orders)

Produced by the same company that gave Honolulu Tsukada Nojo, the hot pots are a signature item that's been carried over to the new MINORI concept.
