It is always great to be back with my talented team, creating new menu items. This time we came up with a delicious dumpling recipe for Monkitail. This restaurant is a contemporary take on the classic Izakaya featuring small plates, sushi and specialty cocktails. We hope you enjoy it!

Edamame Dumplings are one of the most popular menu items at Izakaya. To make them we use truffle pea shoot, sake broth and edamame. If you’re interested in making them at home, keep these important things in mind. When creating the filling, make sure it’s over seasoned as the wrapper will balance everything out. Always use a high-intensity steamer to keep the dumpling from turning out gummy. Lastly, never forget to top it off with great sauce. After that, it’s up to you to enjoy!

Developing a menu is one of my favorite parts of the process. One look at these incredible steaks and you’d probably agree. Be sure to keep an eye out for our new steak boutique!

Robatayaki with Michael Schulson

Robatayaki is one of my favorite dishes. It’s a simple dish that’s fun to prepare in a variety of ways. My best piece of advice for putting this meal together? Never take your eye off the grill. Light it up two or three minutes before grilling, then leave a few inches between the fire and the skewers. After that, enjoy with friends and family. Bon Appetit!
