Seito Sushi Sand Lake hosted its first-ever craft beer dinner in collaboration with Red Cypress Brewery and Tasty Chomps got to attend!

Located in Orlando’s Restaurant Row, Seito Sushi has been serving a variety of classic Japanese fare and Asian inspired dishes over the past ten years. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with hand-selected pieces of art, creating a modern atmosphere that is also reflected in the cuisine at Seito Sushi.

Seito Sushi Sand Lake Executive Chef Seng Inthisack and Red Cypress Head Brewer Garrett Ward developed a six-course pairing menu for the evening. Red Cypress is a Winter Springs-based brewery with a focus on brewing consistent beers, while staying true to the Florida brand.

Everything about the dinner was spectacular and unique. The house cured and smoked fish from the first-course instantly set the mood for a great dinner. Paired with Red Cypress’ Fruit de la Terre Saison, which is made with Florida orange peel as a local ingredient. The beer pairings for each dish created the perfect balance as the entrees progressed to heavier plates.
