Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a 2011 American documentary film directed by David Gelb. The film follows Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi master and owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a Michelin three-star restaurant, on his continuing quest to perfect the art of sushi.

The film also profiles Jiro’s two sons, both of whom are also sushi chefs.

The younger son, Takashi left Sukiyabashi Jiro to open a mirror image of his father’s restaurant in Roppongi Hills.

The 50-year-old elder son, Yoshikazu, obligated to succeed his father, still works for Jiro and is faced with the prospect of one day taking over the flagship restaurant.

 

Until next time . . .
