Daiko Japanese Restaurant

When he first immigrated to the United States, he trained under a master chef in New York for five years before relocating to Connecticut. When he opened the restaurant, it was an instant hit, and has received many recognitions such as being named best Japanese Restaurant by Connecticut Magazine. The menu includes Beef Negamaki, Yosen Nabe, and Red Snapper.
