About Chef Billy Kin
As the chef/owner of 5Kinokawa and the upcoming 5Tesseract, Chef Billy Kin finds his inspiration in culinary art from his childhood memories of being in both his father and grandfather's restaurants, in Japan and the US.
Under the tutelage of Chef Takehiko Fuse of Musashino Austin – whose disciples include the likes of Tyson Cole of Uchi and Kazu Fukomoto of Fukumoto – Chef Kin was able to elevate his culinary skills and create concepts such as Blackbird Izakaya and Hidden Omakase.
