Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
Hi! My name is Ai. I grew up in Japan, helping my mother in the kitchen ever since I was a little kid, watching and learning as she cooked away. My food reflects my background and roots, looking back fondly at meals I created with my mom, as well as reflecting the experiences I've had over years of traveling around the U.S. and the world. My dishes are Vegetarian and/or Pescaterian. My husband Mat and I built a small farm on our loft rooftop a few years ago and we grow many of the vegetables, greens and herbs I use in the cooking, including the Japanese staple herb, shiso! I select other choice ingredients at the green markets and other quality sources around NYC and beyond. We are very conscious about food, the environment and health. Our tasty meals are well balanced and full of pronounced and subtle flavors. Flavor and nutrition is what it's about and should not be mutually exclusive. If you want to experience a unique flavor palette and quality ingredients, then this is the place! Please send me a message if you would like to setup private party. Here is my facebook page to follow upcoming events and view more pictures! https://www.facebook.com/ajitofood
I'm in my thirties
Production as hobby and Food as a life!
What to expect at Ai's place
This was our first Eatwith and our experience with Ai was outstanding! She is fantastic chef, great host all the time making sure that we are happy and satisfied with the food and everything. We had delicious japanese food! We were first time visiting New York and this was the best way how we could meet an inspiring local people, ate delicious food and be touched by the spirit of the town! incredible night, recommended.
Ai’s Dinner was SPECTACULAR! I enjoyed every moment. Ai is a gracious host and prepares each course with so much thought, fresh ingredients and love. The bonus is meeting and enjoying the new friendships made at the beautiful dinner table Ai has set up. I highly recommend booking an evening for an incredible dining experience with Ai. I look forward to returning! Thank you Ai!
