Jiro Dreams of Sushi 2012/7/25 07:53
I just wanted to recommend this documentary film on Jiro Ono and his Sushi.

"JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the worldfs greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review"

Interesting documentary about work ethics, interaction between father and sons, etc. Also has some good footage from Tsukiji.

In Japanese with English subtitles. Might be in limited release in the theatres (it is in Australia) or available on DVD now too.

GC3, I agree that this was a great movie. I saw it about two months ago in San Francisco. My only complaint was that it became a bit like a long commercial after a while. I would have liked to have gone there this trip, but I could not justify the 30,000 yen for a meal. Today, I walked by the Nihonbashi Takashimaya where there is a Sukibayashi branch on 4F, with set menus for about 4,000, but I don't think these are any different than other medium class sushi-ya. I do enjoy fine food; however, I don't think I could differentiate between Jiro's sushi and other medium class sushi. I enjoy my Sushi Dai and Sushi Bun sushi just fine.
