Michelin-starred Chef
Born and raised in Beijing, executive chef Jackson Yu has been preparing traditional edomae sushi for nearly 20 years.
After moving to the bay area at the age of 18 and developing a passion for Japanese cuisine, Chef Yu took the time to hone his technical skills and cultivate his knowledge of traditional cuisine at some of San Francisco’s most highly respected Japanese restaurants, before opening several restaurants throughout the city, including the Michelin-starred Omakase in the summer of 2015. Omakase is the fourth San Francisco restaurant from chef Yu, who also co-owns two locations of live sushi in San Francisco, as well as Okane, located next door to Omakase. Under Chef Yu’s leadership, Omakase has earned a reputation for being one of the highest quality and most authentic sushi restaurants in the bay area. After less than a year in operation, Omakase received a Michelin star and a “top 100” ranking by the San Francisco chronicle’s restaurant critic, Michael Bauer.
