The gift of a private chef cooking for you in the privacy of your own kitchen is now a reality with an online booking company, Chef Omakase. The home dinner party has never been more appealing or affordable and makes a distinctive holiday gift – or to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, corporate gatherings, special occasions.
Chef Omakase creates a fantastic culinary experience with Michelin star meals that diminishes the perception of a private chef only being attainable by the ultra-wealthy. The smooth and streamlined process is easily accessible and as simple as ordering a taxi or a vacation rental via an app.
This service is the brainchild of Keiko Ono Aoki, widow of Rocky Aoki, and former CEO of Benihana Tokyo. From the legacy of the Benihana restaurant dynasty comes a new concept in dining that creates the ultimate luxury lifestyle for all. Keiko’s experience during the pandemic in New York City led her to conceptualize the digital platform that enables customers to experience a meal prepared by a private chef in your own home simply by choosing the style of cuisine and paying a fixed price per person for the experience. During COVID, like many Keiko become accustomed to working from home and experiencing historically high amounts of quality time with loved ones. The benefit of the pandemic was people learned to connect again, and the controlled environment setup has become a preferred way of life for being with friends and family.
The comfort and joy in eating at home in the last year is now desirable more than ever. Now Chef Omakase can provide the perfect opportunity to continue this image. Like the high-profile company Airbnb, Chef Omakase allows you to personalize a unique experience that embarks on a journey that takes off and embraces you in your own luxe moment.
Chef Omakase works by connecting you with a professional chef to cook a curated menu in your home at your convenience. The company takes the stress out of a dinner party for groups of up to eight people.

Fresh ingredients will be delivered to your door the day before the set time of arrival for your chef booking.
