In this episode, the show profiles chefs Oona Tempest and Toshio Oguma from the Upper East Side’s omikase-only Tanoshi.
Tanoshi Sushi NYC was born from a variety of happy accidents. King Ang, the owner, happened to come across an empty space on the Upper East Side that had no kitchen—which led him to make it a sushi bar. Toshio Oguma, the head sushi chef, was finishing up work in California when his wife found a Craigslist ad for an experienced sushi chef. Now, three years later, Tanoshi is creating some of most delicious sushi in New York City (and offering the most affordable omakase).
