About Rin

凛  Rin 

Rin is a Japanese word that suggests the crispness or the elegant tension in one’s state or appearance. It’s a very fitting word for describing the fresh gracefulness of traditional Japanese cuisine and confectionery. 

mochi Rin infuses New York’s local essence into Japan’s popular traditional dessert, the stuffed mochi rounds, such as daifuku and sakura-mochi; and mixes in rin, the element of graceful liturgy, to create a new type of mochi that are not yet found in Japan.

 

春夏秋冬  Seasons 

Just as authentic Japanese cuisine is to be prepared with seasonal ingredients, traditional Japanese confectioneries have desserts that embrace and reflect flavors of each season.

In Japanese, we call the time in the year when an ingredient reaches its optimal deliciousness, shun. There are 3 phases of shunhashiriis the first few days, shun the 10 prime days, and nagori the last few days. 

Here in New York, we have four seasons that are just as richly textured as those in Japan. Our desserts reflect the luscious shun of New York with locally picked flowers, fruits and nuts.
