Project Summary

From the world-famous Matu Steakhouse in Beverly Hills to the dozens of Sugarfish and KazuNori locations throughout California and New York, the Sushi Nozawa Group is a California-based restaurant group renowned for creating dining experiences led by an immeasurable attention to detail and commitment to perfection. Their food is lauded for its complexity and quality, and the ambience in their restaurants is a reflection of that excellence.
