Head Sushi Chef Hayashi Tomoyuki

Tomoyuki was born in Shizuoka, Japan, located on central Honshu’s Pacific coast home to Mt. Fuji, Japan’s highest peak. He always had a desire to become a craftsman. His career path was between a carpenter and a cook, he chose to become a sushi chef. He got involved in the sushi industry right after graduating university.

The owner of the first sushi place he worked at in Japan, introduced him to a restaurant in NY. Since then, he experienced 7 different Japanese restaurants in NY. One of them being Yuzu, his own sushi place which he opened in 2015, TAO (executive sushi chef) and he opened Azabu NY when it was Greenwich Grill/Sushi Azabu.

History of Azabu

The name Azabu comes from a district in Tokyo, Japan, which began as a hub for merchants and local businesses. Now the city is home to embassies from many countries, giving the area an air of diversity, while preserving the history of local commerce with a modern, nostalgic touch.

Plan Do See opened one of its first restaurants in the area, The Tokyo Restaurant, inside an historic building that used to be a bank. Soon after opening, the restaurant was full of a diverse clientele, bringing a lively vibe to the neighborhood. Plan Do See Founder Yutaka, walked by and noticed the restaurant swarming with international guests. It was this moment, in the city of Azabu, that he felt certain of the imminent success of expanding the business abroad.

A few years later, Plan Do See opened its first American restaurant in Tribecca, New York: Sushi Azabu, named as an homage to the feeling of certainty Yutaka felt all those years ago.
