Editor's Notes: Directed by David Gelb of the celebrated Netflix series Chef's Table, Jiro Dreams of Sushi shows us a passionate chef who's more concerned in perfecting his food than he is in expanding his empire of restaurants, appearing on Iron Chef or selling cookbooks. Gelb's film chronicles the work of 85-year-old sushi master Jiro Ono, whose brilliant cooking stands out even in his busy, small restaurant located inside a Tokyo subway stop. A feast for the imagination that'll have you fantasizing about small plates and fresh-from-the-ocean sushi, Jiro Dreams of Sushi also looks at tradition and change, as Jiro's son Yoshikazu prepares to take over the family business and follow in his father's unique footsteps in a brave new world of food and fame.Synopsis: JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s 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 three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.Keywords: Sushi master art of sushi japanese japan 3 michelin stars award winning renowned chef father son
