Missed your shot at landing a seat at one of Yakimono's three sold-out MFWF dinners? Well, you've scored a second (and third) chance because the Japanese diner is bringing back its smash-hit seafood feast for two more rounds next month.

Cray Cray will deliver another crustacean celebration on Tuesday, May 2, and Tuesday, May 30, as chef Daniel Wilson plates up a five-course homage to the not-so-humble freshwater crayfish.

With tickets coming in at $145, you'll dive into dishes like crispy charcoal crayfish karaage, barbecued crustacean skewers paired with yuzu togarashi butter, and for the main event, half a cray cooked on the Josper, then matched with a spicy bisque and slaw.

Yakimono's usual drinks lineup will be available to add on from, or you can leave your evening's beverage adventure to the experts and go for the $65 cocktail and sake pairing. The menu includes gems like Asahi Shuzo's Dassai 45 Junmai Daiginjo, and the passionfruit, white chocolate and shochu cocktail they call the Shibuya.
