Makati's modern izakaya, which closed last year, is hosting a pop-up 11-course dinner at another Japanese restaurant in December

Makati City’s modern izakaya 12/10 is back! Unfortunately, the resto-pub’s resurrection will only be for two nights, but we’ll take it.

The fine dining Japanese fusion gem will be hosting a pop-up 11-course dinner on December 7 and 14 at Kazunori Japanese Restaurant, located along Chino Roces Avenue Extension. The 11-course omakase will be featuring “12/10’s staples, plus a couple of fresh new dishes, booze included.” Beverage pairings will also be available.

The fixed course menu, which will be released on Sunday, November 28, costs P5,500 per head. According to 12/10, guests can expect a “seafood and vegetable forward progression that includes sashimi, meat, eggs, dairy, soy, nuts, and gluten.” The beverage pairing includes a “welcome highball and a sake & wine flight.”

“We miss you guys and we’ve been feeling all the love. Thank you to all those who’ve been rooting for us to reopen and while that’s still in the works, we’ll be recreating the 12/10 experience at one of the most credible traditional Japanese joints in town,” 12/10 wrote on Instagram.

Guests can book their slots starting Sunday, November 28, at 8 pm via a link on 12/10’s Instagram. A reservation deposit of P1,500 will be required per head, and will be deducted from the total bill after dinner.

Due to safety protocols, diners will be spread out into different time slots of two hours each, starting from 5:45 pm to 9:30 pm.

Kazunori has a Safety Seal, which means that all employees are fully-vaccinated. Guests must present their vaccination cards upon entry. The restaurant and sushi bar is located at the Mazda Makati Building, 2301 Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City.

12/10 closed its doors to the public for “hibernation” on October 31, 2020, after six years of business. The modern izakaya along Guiro Street, Makati City, said that they would see their patrons again “in a different, hopefully much better, form sooner than [they’ll] notice.” –
