As a chef who has worked for the family owned CHAYA restaurant group for the last 10 years, and currently at CHAYA San Francisco, Executive Chef Yuko Kajino brings not only a deft hand to creating inspired cuisine, but also an intimate knowledge of the kitchen, dining room, and its guests. As a teenager in Nagoya, Japan, he was first inspired to consider a culinary career while watching television. “I was 15 and was watching a TV show that featured all this delicious-looking food,” he says of the epiphany. “I’d never seen anything like it in my life, and all I could think was that I wanted to eat that kind of food.”

Deciding he not only wanted to eat the food, but also create it, Kajino moved to Tokyo as a teenager and attended Tuji Culinary School while working as a waiter. In 1998, he went to work at La Marée de CHAYA in Hayama, where he worked in pastry and as a line cook, quickly developing his skills in the kitchen. After only two years he relocated to San Francisco to take a position as a line cook at CHAYA Brasserie San Francisco, working his way up to chef de cuisine over the next nine years. In 2009, he moved to Los Angeles to work as executive chef at CHAYA Brasserie Beverly Hills, the company’s flagship location in the United States, before returning to the Bay Area in late 2010 in his current role.

Executive Chef


Shigefumi Tachibe began his formal culinary training at the age of 15 in Nagasaki, Japan, where he was schooled in formal French technique. Italian cuisine would next capture his imagination, and, at the age of 21, he moved to Italy to expand upon his growing interest in European cooking and cuisine where he worked as a chef in Milan.

When he returned to Japan, Tachibe brought the skills he learned abroad to the role of executive chef of La Marée de Chaya in Hayama, owned by the legendary Tsunoda family, who were known for their 390-year history of operating tea

houses and restaurants throughout Japan. There, he applied his technique to Japanese cuisine to create the kind of fusion cuisine that would eventually change the culinary landscape in America. 

In 1981, Yuji Tsunoda expanded the Chaya brand to the United States, opening La Petite Chaya in Los Angeles. Tachibe was the chef he appointed to run the

kitchen at the innovative Franco-Japonaise eatery.

After the success of La Petite Chaya, the restaurant group expanded in California, opening Chaya Brasserie in Beverly Hills (1984), followed by critically acclaimed Chaya restaurants in Venice (1990), San Francisco (2000), and Downtown L.A.
