Kaisho BellevueKaisho, a modern, high-end interpretation of an izakaya, is celebrating its Grand Opening on December 7 in Bellevue. The Kaisho concept is pioneered by Jeffrey Lunak, former protégé of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Working closely with Lunak is Chef de Cuisine Kalen Schramke, who offers a balance of French and Asian culinary expertise.
