    The Hinoki Counter offers an Edomae style tasting menu, consisting of 5-6 small plates and a selection of seasonal nigiri. The cost is $300 per person.
    Our beverage pairing is comprised of a mix of sake, champagne, and white wine. It costs $175 in the Hinoki Room and $105 in the Ash Room.

    Basically he is saying that he is making sushi out of fish from his own country, which is currently leaking its radiation waste into nearby seas. I don’t see his insistence on using Japanese fish as professionalism. On the contrary, it shows his laziness and desperate stubborness for his misguided pride for his country which could eventually harm his customers.

    When i get the chance to visit Japan i WILL treat myself to a meal at a place similar to this. Having high quality Sushi prepared right in front of me by a master chef like Abe-san will be an amazing experience for sure.

    *"I have no choice but to be successful for everyone who has helped me. I want to do my best for the people who support me."*
    That. That right there is precisely why I love Asian culture so much. You don't get that feeling over here in the USA. Yeah, you may have mom and pop stores, but this is so much more than that. This is actual passion. I want to go eat there one day and watch him entertain me with food. Stuff like this makes food more than just food. It transforms it into an art and its beautiful.

    he looks quite young to be a chef, dont get me wrong but it takes 3 to 4years just to learn how to wash rice and he looks like 20s or early 30s. where did he learn his skills?

  • Matthew Li

    I personally find this whole concept ridiculous. Customers buying this either to trot out their social status or to purchase some kind of cultural experience (which is another way for the Westerners to pay IQ tax).
    In terms of food quality, it really does not matter whether the chef has spent 5 or 10 years training himself with sharpening the knives, mixing the rice, or cutting the fish. TBH, I don't think any average consumer can taste any difference as long as certain threshold is passed. To me, it is mentally lazy for this so-called chef to spend all his years keep practicing the mundane task of making sushi. Japanese chef used to study cuisine around the world and tried to invent new ways of cooking. I guess this represents the new mentality of Japan, gradually burying herself in the past.

      do u really think the average consumer spends over $300 on a meal? This is an omakase menu, not a $20 AYCE sushi place.

    They must be paying him like 500$ a pop to keep this shit running. Also - looks pretty, but i would feel cheated if i only had a tiny bite of everything. Like, i'm sorry, but it takes more than one bite to properly taste and savour something, i'm not Gordon Ramsay.

    At the start when he said he woke up at 8:30 I thought that was pretty late for a restaurant owner, until he got to the end of his day and I realized that he only gets like 5-6 hours of sleep. That's serious dedication and stamina.

  • WiggaMachiavelli

    Sorry, I don't doubt that he is very good and dedicated, but 20 years of study and a restaurant overseas does not a master make. I am sure that he himself will tell you that he is by no means a master, and he wouldn't just be being humble. You are engaging in a weird sort of exoticism-cum-marketing and I think it betrays ignorance and shallowness on your part.

      300 bucks per person. With two seatings a day and let's say 5 people each, he makes 3000 bucks a day and 60.000 in a month. He has at least 3 people working for him so subtract that and the rent and still you have a pretty decent pay I guess. Sleep on the other hand...
