Ju Hachi by Taka
When chef Taka Watanabe heads to work every morning, he leaves behind a backyard of clucking pet chickens and sets his sights on scales. Wielding techniques learned from classically trained sushi chef Shige Tokita, Taka slices scallops, salmon, eel, and other fresh catches into sashimi, hand rolls, and bite-sized nigiri. Beyond the bamboo-topped sushi bar, udon and ramen noodles twirl around bamboo, pork, and scallions, and vegetables and calamari dip into crispy tempura. As guests clamp chopsticks around their rolls or strands of seaweed salad, they can admire the showmanship behind the sushi bar, where Taka and his chefs dice and roll before a backdrop of tapestries depicting famous Japanese art, such as Hokusai's The Wave and Takashi Murakami's childhood bedsheets.
