The dinner takes place Tuesday, May 26 at 6 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]

UNION SQUARE— Ame has brought back their popular Kaiseki dinners, the traditional multicourse Japanese menu focused on seasonal ingredients. Chefs Hiro Sone and Takashi Saito will prepare each dish at the sashimi bar, using fish sourced from Japan's Tsukiji fish market. Wine pairings from Lissa Doumani and Ron Plunkett will accompany each course. The next dinner, which will occur once a month on a Wednesday, takes place May 27 at 6:30 p.m. [EaterWire]

MISSION— As Pride month approaches, Kitchit plans to start things off with a special dinner hosted by chef and drag queen, Juanita MORE!

The dinner takes place May 28 from 7 p.m.- 10:30 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]
