Daikaya Honors “The Incredible, Edible Egg” this Easter

Executive Chef/Partner Katsuya Fukushima of Daikaya, the popular 90-seat izakaya located at 705 6th Street, NW, 20001 in Chinatown, is pleased to introduce fun, flirty egg dishes to his popular brunch menu this Easter. Daikaya’s brunch menu debuted last year, and offers bountiful small plate options highlighting classics with a Japanese twist. On Sunday, April 5th, five new small plates will be added to the menu. They are available exclusively during brunch service, from 11 AM to 3 PM. Highlights include Merengue with seasonal berries; Fried Jidori Egg with caviar and bottarga; Onsen Tamago Egg with hazelnuts, browned butter and dashi potato; an Ambrosia Salad, as well as Miso-Honey Glazed Carrots with rabbit sausage. These new egg-centric dishes will be priced from $7 to $12.

For the perfect pairing, Beverage Director Jamie MacBain has created the Sol Invictus, named after the sun god of the later Roman Empire and a patron of soldiers. This cocktail will be priced at $14, and is made from a combination of Japanese whisky, Bénédictine, green chartreuse, egg yolk and Peychaud’s Bitters.
