How did you get to where you are?
I started working at my mother's restaurant when I was 10. I continued to learn, moved away to work in some great restaurants. Came home and took a leap of faith that St. Louis was ready for a whole new kind of Asian restaurant.
New things going on in your restaurant:
We are opening Sado. A building my family and I own. Completely rehabbed and absolutely stunning. Serving the best sushi we possibly can, dry-aged fish and a selection of wagyu beef.
