Wabi Sabi

He was born in Thailand, but Buck Thananaken first learned the craft of cutting fish and preparing sushi in Santa Cruz, California in 2000.

Now, he's mastered the art of sushi-making and has opened his own restaurant, Wabi Sabi…

He had partnered with the Empty Bowls franchise, but it has been his dream to start his own eatery. When a spot became available recently inside the Public Market, he jumped on it, and a month later, opened.
