Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Friday, March 9 - Thursday, August 30, 2012

This thoughtful, elegant meditation on work, family and the art of perfection centers on 85-year-old Jiro Ono, the world’s best sushi chef. His restaurant, inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station, has been honored with three Michelin stars. And sushi lovers around the globe shell out top dollar months ahead to book one of its ten coveted seats and dine with a master still scaling new heights of culinary genius.
