Five Sixty Partners With Paper for Water

Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck introduces the Paper Crane, a unique take on the classic Paper Plane cocktail, whose name is inspired by an origami paper crane that sits atop each drink. Guests at Five Sixty can imbibe for a great cause when they order the Paper Crane as each beverage directly benefits Paper For Water, a local organization with a mission to raise money to fund water wells around the world.

Paper For Water was founded seven years ago by Isabelle and Katherine Kei Adams, 15 and 12 years old respectively, when the duo discovered that many girls in third world countries do not go to school because they were hauling water all day, and a child died every 20 seconds from unclean water.

Certainly these words all hold true when describing Master Sushi Chef Hiroyuki “Fuji” Fujino.  We might toss in charming for good measure, and perhaps when we sup on the omakase at Five Sixty atop the tower at the Hyatt downtown the master might toss an extra morsel of the good stuff our way.

Omakase is when you trust your sushi chef to plan your meal for you in place of ordering ala carte. You will find the chef more giving in his rarer stock with more visits when the chef starts trusting your palate as much as you trust that he will prepare something hopefully more rare than those around you. This is a tasting menu with few rules.             Continue reading
