To partake in the Penis Festival stateside, the Matsuri restaurant will serve up a special menu created by Chef Tadashi Ono. Here's what he's erected in honor of the penis.
· Ginseng Up Cocktail: ($12)
· Get It Up Hot Pot: ($23) a traditional Japanese Hot Pot of oyster and sea urchin in dashi broth
· Big Sausage: ($18) served with sea scallops and spicy cod roe
· Hard Banana Cream Pie: ($9) caramelized with chocolate ice cream
The menu will be available only on April 1. Yes, we know that is April Fool's Day but the hotel's reps have assured us that everything is for real--from the penis festival to the menu offerings. The event will also be sponsored by Planned Parenthood, who is giving out free Jeremy Scott condoms.
