Jiro Dreams of Sushi

I am definitely the last person on earth who has seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi.  A couple of my friends suggested I watch this documentary since I’m planning a trip to Japan in the Fall.  It’s about Jiro, a sushi chef who owns a sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station.  Despite the fact that it’s a sushi restaurant in a subway station, it was the first restaurant of its kind to receive three Michelin stars.  This was a beautiful movie about being the best at your work, striving for perfection and living up to a father’s expectations.  It was an inspiring movie and I will never look at sushi the same way again.  The only challenge now is trying to get a reservation at Jiro’s 10 seat restaurant.  Watch the movie trailer below.
