This week on Japan Eats, host Akiko Katayama is joined in the studio by Craig Koketsu, a third generation Japanese-American and chef-partner of Fourth Wall Restaurants in New York City. The group is comprised of established restaurants including the flagship Smith & Wollensky location, Maloney & Porcelli, Quality Meats and Quality Italian.

Tune in to hear how the traditions of his heritage, as well as those of the chefs who mentored him, made Koketsu the chef that he is today.
