Houston Premieres Screening: Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Eighty-five-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world's greatest sushi chef, is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearance, Sukiyabashi Jiro is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin review. Sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimages, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro's sushi bar. Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family and the art of perfection, chronicles Jiro's life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and a loving yet complicated father.
