Dashi Ramen in Durham is offering a five-course Omakase dinner in its upstairs Japanese pub on New Year’s Eve.

Omakase is the Japanese version of a tasting menu. Chef Billy Cotter will prepare the five-course meal, which costs $55 per person or $85 with beverage pairings. A 20 percent tip will automatically be added. Vegetarian options are available.

The dinner will be served in the upstairs pub and the downstairs ramen shop will be open for business as usual.

Reservations are available from 5-9 p.m. To make a reservation, call general manager Pablo Rocha at 919-998-9541. A return call from Rocha is required for a confirmed reservation.

Greg Cox, the N&O’s longtime restaurant critic, gave four out of five stars to Dashi earlier this year. To read that review, go to nando.com/dashireview. Cotter and his wife, Kelli, also own Toast in downtown Durham. They co-own Dashi with Nick Hawthorne-Johnson and Rochelle Johnson, who own the Cookery in Durham.

The restaurant is at 415 E. Chapel Hill St., Durham.
