Kaze: A Gateway to Delicious Japanese Fare

Perfectly grilled, the Momo came with two sauces: a spicy Japanese honey mustard and a sweet saam sauce.

The winds of change have been blowing strongly through Over-The-Rhine these past few years. Both the city and private firms have invested millions of dollars in its continuing revitalization. With the complete remodel of the historic Cincinnati Color Building by 3CDC one more breeze has joined the gale – Kaze

Kaze is a new Japanese gastropub / sushi bar located on the first floor of the Color Building. It’s the product of co-owners Jon Zipperstein of Embers in Kenwood and Hideki Harada formerly of Embers and Boca among others. The restaurant offers a trio of experiences with a relaxed dining area, hip lounge and landscaped beer garden.

We had been hearing great things, so decided to go check out this new arrival to OTRs Gateway Quarter ourselves.
