On this episode we talk with David Schlosser, Chef and Owner of Shibumi, a new DTLA restaurant that is bringing a unique Japanese culinary experience to America.

We talk about Shibumi’s gorgeous bar design, his favorite music, and the dishes he’s most excited about. Learn more about his experience in Japanese kitchens, his journey to creating Shibumi, as well as where the name came from by listening below!
