ATSUSHI'S BACKGROUND

Born in a small town outside Nagoya, Japan in 1978, Atsushi Hattori boasts over twenty years in the restaurant and hospitality industries.

Expertise in Japanese food, culture, business, and management runs in Atsushi's family.

From childhood until he moved to the US in 2008, Atsushi worked in his family's businesses, mastering Japanese food preparation, presentation and sourcing; restaurant-business operations and management; and hospitality.

To trace Atsushi's family's professional history is to trace the lifeblood of Japanese cuisine and culture.

Beginning in the 1930s, Atsushi's grandfather worked as a licensed fisherman and fish merchant. In 1964, he began a family business catering ceremonial Japanese food, and schooled young Atsushi in its arts.

Atsushi's father opened his first restaurant in 1990, with his son by his side.

Atsushi's mother's side of the family is especially diverse and entrepreneurial, having owned a wedding venue, cafe, bar, hair salon, night club, several hotels, an assisted-care living facility, wood-cutting business, silkworm farm, and Asian pear and persimmon farms--all of which influenced Atsushi's expertise.

Once in the US, Atsushi earned the respect, trust, and confidence of restaurant owners, managers, chefs, and staff at iconic establishments like Los Angeles's Gjelina, and MTN, where he was frequently consulted for advice and tutorials in all manner of Japanese food and culture--food preparation, menu planning, fish selection, insurance risks and security, staff training, and more.

Further setting Atsushi's CV apart is his fifteen years in the insurance industry, experience that enhances his insights into the food and restaurant industries, and endows him with underwriting skills (analyzing and assessing assets, potential risk, problem-solving, and risk-management), meticulous attention to detail, and dexterous negotiation skills.

Atsushi has also served as a trusted and well-loved teacher at one of Los Angeles's foremost Japanese Institutes, coordinating among students, parents, secondary schools, and colleges.
