Who better to be the first guest chef at Sushi on Jones than Chef Yuki Chidui of Japan’s Nadeshico Sushi, the only all-female sushi counter and restaurant in Akihabara, Tokyo. Chef Chidui will be offering a limited time 12-course menu inspired by her favorite subject, outer space, with each course named after a celestial body or theme. Chef Chidui started in the kitchen at a young age and endured common industry hardships as well as sex based discrimination. Instead of giving up, Chef Chidui decided to empower other women and speak out against industry injustice.

Highlights from her pop-up menu include Earth: Botenebi shrimp, yam, uni, and marinated blue seaweed; Jupiter: Hotate, honeycomb, and Daikon radish; and Venus: Toasted Kinmedai skin, cherry salt, and raw yuba fry. On Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18, Chef Chidui will be serving lunch at the Bowery Market location from 12:00–3:30 PM and dinner at the West 10th Street location from 5:00–10:30 PM.
