So I’m late to the game on this one, but if you haven’t yet seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi, go see it now. It’s a fascinating look at Sukiyabashi Jiro, the famed sushi restaurant in Tokyo, and its 85-year-old chef, Jiro Ono. But more than an exploration into sushi making, it’s a story of family and of craftsmanship. Unlike so many restaurants today, money or even culinary innovation isn’t what drives Jiro to succeed, but rather the perfection of the art. Go see the film, and make sure you have a reservation at a sushi restaurant to follow — all the sushi porn is going to make you crave some raw fish.
