Chaya Brasserie in fashionable Beverly Hills, California is a culinary reflection of Los Angeles' ethnic mix. Executive chef Shigefumi Tachibe was trained in formal French technique in Nagasaki, Japan and later learned Italian techniques while working in Milan, Italy. He helped found Chaya in 1983 and developed a menu that appealed to his California clientele's obsession with health and international sophistication.
