Richie Nakano (SF's Hapa Ramen), Johanna Ware (Portland's Smallwares), Scott Vivian (Toronto's Beast), and Aaron Hoskins (Richmond's the Rogue Gentlemen) are among the 30 chefs that will collaborate over the course of several multi-course meals. Elliott promises the second half of the line-up is still forthcoming, but tickets to the dinners are already available; more information here. [EaterWire]

Now, Eater Chicago reports Yagihashi has revealed the special "Imperial 7" omakase menu that will close out the restaurant's run. The restaurant's final service will be New Year's Eve. [ECHI]
