About Us

The Sushi Man was built on a belief that high-end sushi restaurants shouldn't be the only place to be able to enjoy fresh sushi.  Why not be able to have that high level of quality and service at your home, your wedding, your party, your work, or wherever else you like!  We pride ourselves in not only the high quality of our food but our level of service from beginning to end.  We are entirely dedicated to providing our customers and clients the finest experience and hospitality the industry can offer. 

CHEF AND FOUNDER

Jun Nakajima

Raised in a restaurant household, Jun's love for food began at a very early age.  His parents have owned and operated a Japanese restaurant for over 30 years where he practiced and honed his culinary skills.  Somewhat forced upon, he was taught the art of sushi making in his teenage years.  He quickly fell in love not only with the art but the endless opportunities that came with it.  He has traveled around the globe to try different styles of sushi, most importantly to Japan.  After college, he had taken an opportunity to live in the motherland of sushi, working for something completely outside the culinary field.  In those two years his appreciation of the culture, people, history and food deepened.  He became addicted to the food scene and found himself traveling from one end of the island to the other, eating and drinking some of the best foods and drinks he's ever had.  This experience became the seed which eventually bloomed to become The Sushi Man.
