Bento and Bubbles at Ascend

It’s not just steak and sushi at Lincoln Square’s loftiest restaurant. Ascend’s chefs have collaborated to present a modern take on the classic Japanese bento box, offering a sample of three tastes, including sushi and savory items selected from the dinner menu, available weekdays from 5-7 p.m. The four bento offerings include vegan, meat, and seafood options. But, what’s a meal without a good beverage pairing? Beverage director Brandon Rastok selected three optional bubbly choices to accompany the bento boxes, including Dewazakura Tobiroku, an unusual dry sparkling sake; Ruinart Blanc de Blanc Champagne; and a Brut Rosé. Prices range from $20 to $40 for just the bento, $30-$50 with the addition of a glass of the sake bubbles, and $45-$60 with a glass of Champagne.
