"Yusho Unveils Specialty Kikusui Funaguchi Sake Can"
The largest pourer of Kikusui Funaguchi sake in the world, Yusho is now the only restaurant to carry its own personalized can, created by Chicago artist Sarah Becan. The Japanese street food restaurant, known for its bold flavors, unveiled the specially designed can at their Yusho After Dark event series on Tuesday, June 2. Executive Chef Brian Lhee and Wirtz Beverage Sake Director, Eric Swanson, were on-hand to share tasting notes and sake expertise with the crowd.
The can features a vibrant and whimsical design inspired by the restaurant’s modern approach to Japanese street food. A fresh sake that hasn’t been pasteurized or blended, Funaguchi has a light, rich flavor and continues to mature in the can. At 19.8 percent alcohol content, it packs a kick to get the party started.

Before launching Yusho’s Las Vegas outpost, Matthias Merges has mentored some of the restaurant industry’s greatest talents in his 14 years as Executive Chef of Chicago’s Charlie Trotter’s.
Merges’ philosophy on street food is simple—it’s the great equalizer—no glamour required. Yusho is about the simple flavors of authentic street food. A hot grill provides intense flavors from seasonal proteins and vegetables, grilled to order over a chattering, hissing fire. Beer, wine and sake selections complement the fresh-grilled flavors. Craft cocktails, wine and spirits are chosen for customized meal pairings. Experiment and discover at Yusho soon!
