Last night, Mura in North Hills had their "Third Monday Dinner." The dinner happens once a month and anyone can attend; however, tickets go fast! There are a very limited number of tickets sold for this unforgettable dinner, dining takes place in the tatami room, a traditional Japanese-style room where you sit on mats on the floor. This special table only has 12 spots.
The "Third Monday Dinner" is a 7-course wine and sake dinner where guests are guided through a one-of-a kind dining experience. Guests are greeted with champagne and then seated in the tatami room. The head Chef addresses the table and explains the courses, where the food comes from and inspirations for each dish. Throughout the evening the staff guides everyone through the beverage pairings to compliment the delicious food.
