Bay Nine Omakase has appointed Yul Kim as Head Chef following six months of acting in this position. With two tenures at Sushi E under his belt and more than 15 years as a sushi and sashimi chef in Sydney, Chef Kim is well versed in the balance of precision and personality expected of an omakase chef. The 10-seater counter omakase dining experience places guests in Kim’s hands for an intimate, personal presentation of 11 courses. The idea of the omakase – which loosely translates to ‘let me choose for you’ – is to place your trust in the hands of the chef, allowing them to select the most fresh and fitting dishes. “You need to be very precise in this role, especially with sashimi and nigiri, so there is an art to delivering an experience that is both technically meticulous and personable. One of the main reasons guests book an omakase experience is because they want to engage with a chef, not just watch one. For me, that’s one of the most enjoyable aspects of this role – the opportunity to have conversations with guests beyond the dish I’m presenting to them, “ said Kim. Bay Nine Omakase offers seating for 10 guests at the counter for an 11-course menu, presented by Chef Kim, for $215pp. In addition, there’s also a set menu available – eight courses for $155pp – and this is served to your table on the main floor (the eight-course menu is not available at the counter). Seats have just been released for bookings in November and December.
