Friends, Orlandoans, lovers of all things Nihon, lend me your ears.

Lordfer Lalicon, Mark Berdin and Jennifer Banagale, the trio behind such Japanese-inspired outfits as Kappo and Konbini, announced they will open Kadence, their much-anticipated Audubon Park omakase restaurant, TODAY.

There's no signage on the restaurant, so if you're wondering where it is, just look for the all-black edifice next to the ABC Fine Wine & Spirits on Winter Park Road. The happy gams peeping out from the restaurant's unique floor-level window will give you a sense as to how busy it is.

As we reported back in April, the restaurant will seat just nine people and serve a superlative sushi omakase. Two seatings will be offered Tuesdays through Saturdays: 6 p.m. (for $130) and 8:30 p.m. (for $145). Dinners will comprise 18+ courses.

On Sundays, three seatings will be offered: 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. for a cost of $75. These "Kappo-style" tastings will comprise 7+ courses and offer both raw and cooked dishes.

Future plans call for additional seating in the back of the restaurant for grander omakase experiences, and come mid- to late-October, Kadence will open for lunch, offering one seating (time TBD).

All three are certified sake professionals, so you can bet proper-good sake will be poured during lunch and dinner hours. Needless to say, they're promising a sake selection that's second to none.
