At the heart of this culinary heaven, Chef de Cuisine James Paul Valdez Lorenzo and Sushi Chef Takanori Tanaka form an unstoppable duo, redefining gastronomy, pushing boundaries, and elevating the restaurant to new heights. Their diverse backgrounds and unwavering determination create a progressive dining experience that surpasses expectations. Chef James Lorenzo's journey started as a humble busboy in a small restaurant where he discovered his determination for this career path 16 years ago. He reflected on the cultures of the places he lived and worked in such as Jakarta, Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Hanoi, and applied the same culinary styles he has learned to create special dishes. Similarly, Chef Tanaka discovered a passion for cooking when he was just 17. He had opportunities to work in many restaurants all over the world with an emphasis on training in Sashimi. These experiences evoked his sense of creative culinary.
