We’re looking for a sushi chef for our new restaurant Umi by Hamasaku in El Segundo.
Chef must have a passion for food and want to take sushi to the next level. Have an eye for detail and be a team player. If you have watched Jiro dreams of Sushi and believe in his philosophies, we want you! You will be responsible for breaking down the fish, prepping for the sushi bar, making sushi rice, inventory, keeping work space clean and organized, and more. Our Executive Sushi Chef Yoya is very talented, he is willing to train the right individual but you must know how to order and keep quality control. If you have the knowledge and have the passion to learn more we want you.
He was recently featured on Vice munchies and this is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best.
Umi by Hamasaku is a seafood izakaya and sushi restaurant at The Point in El Segundo. The concept comes from partners Jesse Duron, chef Yoya Takahashi and owner Michael Ovitz, as an offshoot of Los Angeles’ revered Japanese staple Hamasaku. Open for lunch and dinner, the menu features the high quality seafood Hamasaku is known for with seasonal shared plates; a traditional and modern izakaya offering; various sushi preparations; and an accessible omakase that includes a starter, two sashimi courses, an 8-piece nigiri course and a handroll.
