A BIg LOss
With extreme sorrow, I am sharing the passing of local legend Shuji Manabe. He has given me such culinary joy over the last 25 years starting at Momoya
When my son was young he would order a roll from Doraku after soccer practice 10 years old he’d go in pick up his roll and Shuji would often serve him direct. And if we ate in as a family he always had something special come to the table for the boy.
I am devastated, but it is a reminder to really appreciate folks in the service industry that become part of your life.
