A special menu created by the Japanese inspired restaurant on Greenwich Avenue promotes the upcoming 8th Annual Celebrating Hope Gala at Belle Haven Club on April 25.
MIKU SUSHI (68 Greenwich Avenue) will debut an all-new specials menu on Sunday, March 1, dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter. The menu features four items, all representing a theme or message to support the non-profit's work in Alzheimer's care, support, and research. This partnership is part of a monthly community outreach campaign designed by the MIKU team to help generate stronger connections in the community throughout the year.
"We were very pleased with how this program kicked off in February. Customers were calling us, letting us know they heard about the partnership and they ordered from the menu without it being posted to our website! I received great feedback from our February non-profit partner, and it has been really great getting to know our upcoming partners as we plan the menus and awareness pieces for March, April and beyond," said K Dong, Co-owner of MIKU. He continued, “This program became so popular that we are thinking to launch something similar at our Westchester location, KUMO Sushi Lounge in Scarsdale" (kumoscarsdale.com).
Special items for the month of March include "A Toast to Celebrating Hope" ($24.95) uni (sea urchin), toast, truffle butter, yuzu sauce; "Summer Solstice Noodles" ($12.95) cold buckwheat soba: buckwheat, sesame, seaweed, scallion, bonito, sweet and sour sauce (gluten-free); "24/7 Sashimi Helpline" ($15.95) seared salmon with togarashi chili pepper, sesame, wasabi mayo, orange citrus sauce; "Matcha Forget Me Not" ($12) housemade matcha layer cake with a scoop of green tea ice cream. Each item is paired with a message on the menu to help customers make a connection to the non-profit partner in a meaningful way.
The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. “Alzheimer's is an emotionally, physically and financially taxing disease," says Robin Sharp, Executive Director of the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter. She continued, "We want those with dementia and their caregivers to know that they are not alone and that we are here for them at every stage of their journey."
The 8th annual Celebrating Hope gala is on April 25 at the Belle Haven Club. Funds raised will help the Alzheimer's Association offer more programs and services as well as contribute to the critically important research driven by the organization's team. The event will honor those who are making a difference in the community by supporting families impacted by dementia.

The Alzheimer’s Association provides free services including education and support groups for those with dementia, their caregivers and members of the public. Money raised allows ALZ to advocate on the state and federal level and fund critical research to find new treatments or a cure.
MIKU is open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, and on-site catering. For more information please visit the restaurant's website (mikugreenwich.com).
