Tsuyoshi Go Nagano

CHEF

Japanese Cuisine Chef and Sake Sommelier

Growing up in his native Tokyo, Japan, Nagano was immersed in several of Japan’s cultural traditions: the high art of the tea ceremony; the very intense spiritual and beautiful “arrangement” of Japanese flora known as ikebana; and the creation of sushi. [Nagano’s brother is a Japanese Edomae sushi chef; his aunt, a highly respected priestess of both the tea ceremony and ikebana; and his uncle, owner of “Shingo,” one of Manhattan’s most legendary sushi restaurants of the 80s.]

 

In addition to his work as a Japanese Cuisine chef with roots in the rich tradition of the art of making sushi, but with an inventive, imaginative twist, Nagano is qualified as a Sake Sommelier, Japanese Sake Quality Appraiser and Food and Beverage Navigator by Sake Service Institute (TOKYO).

He has held the positions as a sushi chef / executive chef in some of the most well known award winning restaurants in Greece such as  OOZORA, NAMMOS Mykonos, Matsuhisa Mykonos, and GAKU.

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.
