TSUYOSHI GO NAGANO is a Japanese cuisine chef who combines his native rich heritage of Japanese culture with his acquired taste for the modern, organic and “globally hip.”
He specializes in preparing Tokyo’s classic Edomae Sushi -- the authentic style of sushi– but with an innovative twist that has been described as “Edomae Sushi in New Attire.”
With a special interest in horticulture and proponent of sustainable cuisine, key to Nagano’s sushi creations is, in addition to providing the highest quality and taste, to bring a level of ecological consciousness by using local and seasonal ingredients.
