San Francisco's Sushi Bistro 2G Japanese Brasserie Recently Hired Two New Chefs

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2011

The highly respected Toshio Oguma, former Executive Sushi Chef of Morimoto Napa and New York; and, Yasu Ueno, former Chef de Cuisine of Chaya Brasseries have joined San Francisco’s Sushi Bistro2G Japanese Brasserie Restaurant.

2G Japanese Brasserie is San Francisco’s new Japanese sushi restaurant. Its primary focus is on the quality of the ingredients, carefully handpicking each vendor, while supporting local growers and businesses. No ordinary sushi bistro, their extensive menu now includes over 30 new rolls and an impressive fish selection. 2G brings Japanese food to a new level and gives new meaning to the best sushi restaurant in San Francisco.
2G Japanese Brasserie is tucked away inside of the Opera Plaza, which is in the heart of San Francisco near the City Hall, SF Opera, and SF Ballet. Serving authentic Japanese cuisine with fresh ingredients from local vendors, this restaurant is led by owner Jason Tsuji (pronounced as 2G).

Jason has worked at various restaurants in the city, most notably his longest tenure of over ten years at Cioppionos in Fisherman’s Wharf. Here, he gained his most valuable experience of management in a high volume capacity. Much like his grandfather, Shigeyuki Tsuji, who opened up a restaurant in Chinatown called Ryumon back in 1979, Jason Tsuji also dreamed of running his own restaurant business.

The dream finally came to reality in February 2011. Jason’s idea to open up the restaurant came together when he combined his lifetime experience in growing up in the city with his love for Japanese food. Jason spent the majorities of his summers and winters with his family in Tokyo, Japan as he grew up. This is where he was introduced and discovered his passion for Japanese food.
2G Japanese Brasserie offers a full sushi bar and traditional Japanese cuisine from the kitchen. The restaurant is led by Toshio Oguma, former executive sushi chef of Morimoto Napa and New York. Yasu Ueno, former chef de cuisine of Chaya Brasseries heads the kitchen. With Mr. Ueno and the well-respected Mr. Oguma, together they are ready to set a new standard for Japanese food here in San Francisco.
"Now, we have two of the most well-known and highly respectable chefs in San Francisco," said Jason Tsuji, owner of 2G Japanese Brasserie. "Come and experience what they have to offer."

2G offers an amazing weekend breakfast menu until 3:00 p.m. with unique menu items such as Macha French Toast and Taiyaki Pancakes. Macha French Toast is a green tea french toast served with bacon, pork sausage, bananas, or strawberries. Taiyaki Pancakes are taiyaki-style pancakes with homemade custard syrup, bacon, pork sausage, bananas or strawberries. Both of these exotic and delicious breakfast menu items are served with two eggs, any style. Or try the true food nirvana known as the "Omakase" (Chef selection - based on seasonal ingredients).
