MEET THE TEAM
We are here to bring beautiful sushi to the neighborhood of five points. Our sushi chefs are the heart of our Omakase menu and each brings their own unique skills and taste to serve you best.
Omakase translates to "I will leave it to you." It is the Japanese tradition of letting the chef choose your order, both giving the chef creative freedom and the guest a memorable experience.
