Mican Auction

by Charlottesville29



Here is your chance to experience Mican like you never have experienced it before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry. It’s The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions, presented by McGuireWoods. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Mican has created a signature experience available to whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.  Thanks to the generosity of Mican, the winning bid goes directly to the food bank, and each dollar donated is enough to provide four meals to the area’s hungry. So, a winning bid of, say, $1,000 means not just a wonderful meal for the winner and their guests, but also 4,000 more meals for the area’s hungry.

The Mican signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auction:

Omakase at Mican

“Omakase,” which has come to mean a meal of the chef’s choice, has its roots in the Japanese word for “entrust,” and it does require a great deal of trust of the sushi chef. Yoshihiro Tauchi, chef-owner of Mican, warrants that trust. The auction winner and three guests will be treated to an omakase meal of some of Tauchi’s favorite dishes, both raw and cooked, with sake and wine to go with them. An array of “exquisite, traditional Japanese dishes.” Tauchi will also visit with guests to describe the dishes and their preparation. Expect a few menu highlights and off-menu surprises. The ultimate Mican experience.

Note: The winner will schedule the meal at a mutually convenient time for Mican.
