Bio: Taro was born in Kyushu. He was virtuous, carefree, radical, and was forever being sent home from school. At age 15, with the money Taro saved from doing his paper route, Taro’s father decided to move to America.
In 1987, Taro’s parents opened a modest Japanese restaurant called “Mikuni” in Sacramento, California, to provide a living for the family. More than twenty-five years and several locations later, Mikuni is one of the most successful restaurant businesses in the region. Sushi chef Taro Arai is imaginative, inventive, personable, unpredictable, energetic, eclectic, and even a little bit outrageous. He’s one of the hottest and most renowned sushi chefs to hit the restaurant scene.
