MEET our world-class sushi chefs

Loi Pham

Chef Pham, a Rochester native, has a passion for sushi—particularly when it comes to fusing American and Japanese cuisine. With 12 years of experience, he translates his love for sushi and fusion cuisine into unique dishes like our Tuna Salmon Poke bowl, Tuna Tartare and Red Dragon Roll. Next Door patrons can observe Chef Pham’s expert skills up close and ask questions about the evening’s featured dishes at the Sushi Bar in the main dining room.

Satoshi Yamaguchi

Chef Satoshi Yamaguchi, a graduate of Masuda Culinary School in Tokyo, is a master of traditional sushi and joined Wegmans in 2005. Today at Next Door, he excels in bringing together inventive mixtures of ingredients that appeal to contemporary tastes, and showing how the art of sushi is a tradition that’s alive and vibrant with new possibilities. Yamaguchi finds inspiration in the rare and fresh seasonal ingredients Next Door is able to source, allowing him to create crowd favorites such as a peach, truffle and yellowtail salad or a unique fish special with fresh-caught bonito.

In addition to his work at Next Door, Chef Yamaguchi develops products for Wegmans Food Markets, including our highly popular Sockeye Salmon rolls.

Tadao Mikami

Chef Tadao Mikami has been cooking since he began working in his family’s business in Tokyo at the age of 14. He completed college and culinary school in Tokyo, and later worked as a chef in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka before coming to New York City in 1975 and opening several of his own restaurants. In 2008, Chef David Bouley asked him to join his staff, and Mikami worked for Bouley for six years before joining the Next Door team in 2014.

Chef Mikami loves to share his knowledge of Japanese cuisine through teaching others. His signature “East Meets West” five-course dinners with wine pairings are held regularly at Next Door. These dinners feature the freshest sustainably sourced ingredients and discussion of the cooking techniques used.

In addition to his work at Next Door, Chef Mikami develops new products for Wegmans Food Markets, including our popular line of ready-to-cook entrees and sides.
