Kurosawa

The great film director Akira Kurosawa was a connoisseur of Japanese cuisine in the widest sense -- he especially liked his meat and chicken, it is reported. But he was also an aficionado of te-uchi (fresh, handmade) soba. So that is why, after his death, when plans were hatched to launch a Kurosawa-inspired restaurant, it was deemed essential not only that no shortcuts be taken on the food, but that good noodles would be an essential part of the equation.
