Mercy Me launches a limited-time Omakase experience

Blending the timeless art of sushi with the transient beauty of cherry blossoms. Mercy Me at Yours Truly is launching an Omakase pop-up experience in collaboration with Omakase Nomad, promising an unforgettable evening of exquisite dining. The inaugural pop-up is set to captivate guests this Sunday, April 7, marking the beginning of a six-week series that will occur exclusively on Sundays until its grand finale on May 12.

Nestled in the enchanting setting of The Blossom Garden, inspired by the spring charm of Japanese Sakura Blossoms and painted in hues of delicate pink, Mercy Me’s intimate Omakase pop-up boasts just 36 sought-after seats for each reservation time: an early dining session at 5:30 p.m. followed by a later experience at 8:00 p.m. Each 90-minute session is an immersive tasting adventure, meticulously crafted to introduce diners to the sophisticated world of sushi through the creative lens of two of DC’s most promising and innovative sushi chefs.

This experience is designed to be both enlightening and delicious. Attendees are expertly guided through the history and etiquette of sushi while being treated to a multi-course menu.

With ticket prices set at $85 per person for the classic Omakase and $120 per person for the premium experience, guests can tailor their evening to their taste. The classic Omakase features a six-course meal, including Otsumami, a selection of 12 pieces of nigiri, and a delightful dessert. The premium option elevates the experience further with eight courses, showcasing 17 pieces of nigiri with luxurious highlights such as A5 Wagyu and Hokkaido Uni, culminating in a sweet finish.

For those looking to enhance their dining experience, Mercy Me also offers its signature cocktails à la carte or as part of a curated cocktail pairing for an additional fee. These cocktails perfectly complement the flavors of the Omakase menu.
