Meet Our Chef
Born in Osaka, Japan, Master Chef Masayuki Komatsu has been perfecting his craft of edomae sushi for over fifteen years. Beginning his career at the infamous Sushi Den in New York, he spent a brief period as a Sushi Chef in Monaco before he was later recruited by Chef Morimoto and came down to Miami. Chef Masa is focused purely on Japanese tradition when it comes to sushi and only serves ingredients at their peak season when they show the very best. Through his relationships in Japan, he is able to source the best product from each prefecture year-round. Ogawa is the stage for Chef Komatsu to showcase what the pinnacle of Edomae Sushi is all about.
