Kōsen, a new omakase restaurant, will join the already impressive roster of restaurants in Tampa Heights this October. They just opened up reservations, with the first bookings available on October 6. The restaurant will feature menu by renowned Chef Wei Chen. He comes from the Michelin starred restaurant Masa. The 18-course menu curated by Wei Chen will run $250, and will assuredly be worth every penny. Positioned underneath the Pearl at 307 W Palm Avenue, Kosen will privately host 10-seats at the sushi bar and 25 booth seats in the dining room.

This restaurant is the brainchild of two James Beard Award semifinalists, and will be under the guidance of Chef Chen who apprenticed with a Michelin-starred chef.

“Kōsen, which translates to ray of light, embodies brilliance and enlightenment,” writes the ownership team. “This philosophy is reflected throughout every element of the dining experience, from the carefully crafted menu to the striking design.”
