Chase Kojima

 

Chase has come a long way from his culinary career start as an 11 year old boy in his father's traditional Japanese restaurant. Born and raised in San Francisco, California, Chase has a contemporary and edgy take on Japanese food, which is a reflection of his American upbringing and the cooking traditions he learned from his father.


At only 29, he's headed up kitchens all over the world for the iconic Nobu restaurant group. After four years in Vegas, he circled the Nobu globe working in Dubai, London and LA before finishing at Nobu Bahamas as Executive Chef.

Chase is primed to explore the finest of Sydney culinary delights in his menu. In fact, he spent his first four months in Sydney discovering the local fishmongers and produce suppliers. Every single creation that makes it on the menu is carefully curated.


 


Jean-Baptiste Robert

General Manager


Jean-Baptiste's move into the hospitality industry was in no small part due to his parents' running of a hotel in his native Brittany on France's north coast. After studying industrial mechanics and working briefing as a blacksmith, Jean-Baptiste did a hotel apprenticeship in Brittany before moving to Paris.

There, he worked for the legendary chef Joël Robuchon, who has earned more Michelin Guide stars than any chef in the world (27). Starting off polishing silverware, Jean-Baptiste worked his way up to front waiter at the 2-star La Table de Joël Robuchon. When that restaurant closed, he worked at Robuchon's other Paris establishment, L'Atelier, for a year.

Looking for a sea change, Jean-Baptiste moved to Australia on a working holiday visa to learn English but ended up staying longer than expected when he met his future wife, Rebecca. He continued his foray here, starting work four years ago in the former Star City restaurant, Astral, under Sean Connolly, and moving to Sokyo upon its opening in October 2011.
