Osechi 2014

Continuing the tradition we started last year, Kushi is offering our modern take of the Osechi (お節)box, the Japanese good luck box.

Designed for today’s modern Japanese gatherings, our Osechi includes seven delicious items that represent the best of luck for this coming year.

Instead of packing them all together like the traditional Oju-style Osechi box presentation, each item is individually packaged for your convenience. Our thinking behind this approach: if Osechi menu was meant to be using cooking methods and ingredients to preserve food longer, then let’s apply modern packaging to last them even longer. 

Each menu item serving as a symbol or wish for the coming year, includes a description and its meaning behind. 


This year, we are also offering my favorite Ozoni (お雑煮), just like my mom used to make. Ozoni is a special soup that you eat in the morning on New Year’s Day in Japan. Your first taste of the New Year features our home made dashi broth with seasonal local produce with mochi rice cakes.

Kushi’s Osechi box: $75

Ozoni for Two: $25
