You want sushi, you order a glass of sake to go with it, right? You ask your waiter or waitress to bring a glass over and you’re done.

Unless you’re at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore’s PABU Japanese restaurant, that is. There, you need to navigate through over 100 different types of premium and super-premium sake. Quelle horreur! What’s a sake neophyte to do?

This is where Tiffany Soto, the restaurant’s Sake Sommelier, comes in. As the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore’s Beverage Director, Tiffany is also a Master Sake Sommelier – one of the few women in the world to earn the coveted title.

As one of America’s most sought-after sake senseis, Tiffany has led sake safaris through Japan’s ancient breweries and tackled tastings of up to 1,500 labels over 10 days. Now, she’s putting her sake-savvy to work at PABU, the hotel’s new (opened last month) Japanese Izakaya-style restaurant, where you can order from categories such as Cold Small Plates, Hot Small Plates, Robata (grilled skewers) and Rice, Noodles & Soup.

So when you have a hankering for a Maryland soft shell crab sushi roll at midnight and the perfect sake to complement it, at PABU the master will guide you.

If you want to stay the night at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore after sipping your way through a sake tour, rates in June start at $429 per night.
