Over the past four decades, Chef Umeda has been developing his own unique style in the culinary arts. He first developed his techniques back in Japan where he learned under traditional Japanese sushi chefs. He then moved overseas to London first and then to Los Angeles where he continued to hone his skills and create his very own taste under master chefs like Nobu Matsuhisa. In 2016, Chef Umeda opened his first restaurant on Melrose Avenue. His distinct menu there reflected his love for traditional Japan and his creativity fueled by his knowledge of foreign culinary practices that he acquired working overseas.
With the reopening of the restaurant on Vine Street, Chef Umeda hopes not only to continue providing his customers with his unique culinary experience but also to convey and spread his love for traditional Japanese dishes and the culture behind them.
Besides Japanese traditions and dishes, Chef Umeda loves golf. He resides in Los Angles with his wife and has two sons.
We have finally opened at our new location at 1253 Vine St. #5 Los Angeles, CA, 90038. We look forward to serving you soon!
