Titans of Tailgate: Shota Nakajima

SHOTA NAKAJIMA CHEF | OWNER - ADANA | SEATTLE, WASHINGTON

Chef Shota began his culinary journey at the age of sixteen, working for a well-acclaimed sushi restaurant in his hometown of Seattle, WA. At the age of eighteen, Nakajima moved to Osaka, Japan to learn about the art of Japanese cuisine. In Japan, Nakajima had the opportunity to work for Michelin Star rated Chef Yasuhiko Sakamoto. As one would expect, this experience changed Chef Shota’s perspective on cooking. He returned to Seattle and opened his first restaurant in 2015 and has been part of many amazing opportunities including Iron Chef Gauntlet on Food Network, Best New Restaurant accolades on Seattle Times, Seattle Met, etc.

Since returning to Seattle, it has been Nakajima’s dream to convey Chef Sakamoto’s approach to hospitality and Japanese cuisine in the United States.
