Kasai & Koori co-founders Lee Goldberg
and Taylor Levy are restaurateurs with a
passion for culture, food and amazing
experiences. Through exploratory trips
across the globe, they discovered many
delicacies, but none quite as inspiring as
the creativity they saw in Asian desserts.
In 2018, they brought ideas from their
eastern travels back to the United States
and began collaborating on an Asian ice
dessert concept with Chef Tory
Martindale. After much planning,
numerous focus groups, and multiple
rounds of menu refinement,
Kasai & Koori was born.
The name is derivative of
the Japanese terms for fire and ice,
representative of polarizing forces coming
together to deliver a truly unique
experience in an upscale environment.
