Our guest is Erina Yoshida of Yoshida Restaurant Group in New York. Erina’s father, Tony Yoshida is a quintessential figure when you talk about Japanese food culture in New York. He owns and operates multiple food establishments, including the legendary Sunrise Mart and Angel’s Share. And Erina is supporting him as the COO of the company.

In this episode, we discuss how Erina’s father started the business, the unique concepts of the brands that they operate, Erina’s upbringing as a Japanese American, their new project Japan Village in Industry City, and and much, much more!
