Who has a Japanese chef (besides sushi places)?

williams | Mar 25, 2006 03:15 PM

I've learned over time that I tend to enjoy restaurants with Japanese chefs. So which places have a Japanese chef? I'm not including suchi places. For example, I like Orris (on Sawtelle), Maison Akira (in Pasadena), Shiro (in South Pasadena), and En (in Vancouver). Though of course, a Japanese chef doesn't always mean I'll like it. For example, I had an ok meal at Beacon. Maybe it was an off night, but we're not hurrying back any time soon.

Besides the above, I also know of Mako and Kikuchi from these boards. They are on my list to try. Any others you would recommend?
