“Hiroshi” is an unusual restaurant for an unusual clientele.
Located in Los Altos, California, the newly-opened Japanese restaurant accommodates only eight people per night and has no menus, no windows, and one table. Dinner costs at minimum around $A500 a head, but averages between $A630 and $A750 including beverages and tax.
Chef-owner Hiroshi Kimura left his last restaurant in Hawaii and moved to Silicon Valley in 2016 to launch a concept that would appeal to the deep-pocketed tech elite. Hiroshi hosts three to five dinners a week and is booked solid when a convention comes to town.
All that newly manufactured money has to go somewhere, and a fair bit of it is ending up at the big tech firms.
