HIRO'S TABLE is a documentary portrait of master chef Hiroji Obayashi and his wife Yasuyo over a sixteen-year year span as they managed the day to day operation of their intimate Mom and Pop restaurant, Hirozen Gourmet, nestled in the unlikely corner of a West Hollywood strip mall.
The film is a tribute to the subtleties of Hiro's unique culinary vision and the perseverance it took for his family to transition from immigrant business owners to established restauranteurs with all the the joys and sorrows that entailed.
Hiro’s Table premiered at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival October 2018 winning Best New Mexico Documentary, and received a Taste Award in 2019 in Los Angeles, the 2019 Audience Award at the Golden State Film Festival in Los Angeles, and Best Documentary at the American Asian Latino Film Festival in NYC May 2019.
