Jeff Osaka Explores Advocacy at Esteemed Chefs Bootcamp The owner of 12 at Madison is the ninth Colorado chef to attend the James Beard Foundation’s Chefs Bootcamp for Policy and Change. Jeff Osaka may be a prolific restaurateur—he is the chef-owner of Congress Park’s 12 at Madison, Osaka Ramen, and three Sushi-Rama locations (with two more on the way)—but he’s not all that comfortable expressing himself. “I’m horrible at public speaking,” Osaka admits. But after participating in last week’s James Beard Foundation Chefs Bootcamp for Policy and Change, a prestigious event intended to educate and empower chefs and food industry [...]

Sushi-Rama Adds Commercial Kitchen to Handle Rapid Growth

Sushi-Rama Adds Commercial Kitchen to Handle Rapid Growth Chef/restaurateur Jeff Osaka launched Sushi-Rama at 2615 Larimer Street in late 2015, introducing conveyor-belt sushi to Denver. Osaka's goal at the time was to add multiple sushi bars throughout the metro area and eventually expand beyond Colorado. The semi-automated production and delivery of sushi was intended as both a way to keep the price down for customers and to streamline hiring and training internally. With two new Sushi-Rama outposts already open this year and two more on the way, the company is looking at new ways to become [...]

Denver restaurateur Jeff Osaka growing conveyor-belt sushi concept in Colorado and beyond

Denver restaurateur Jeff Osaka growing conveyor-belt sushi concept in Colorado and beyond Less than three miles from his bustling original Sushi-Rama restaurant, but seemingly a world away, Jeff Osaka is building plans to grow the concept up and down the Front Range and into other states — from a 3,020-square-foot warehouse that will be the nerve-center of his fresh-fish distribution throughout the region. The longtime Denver chef — who helmed the now-shuttered Twelve but still operates Osaka Ramen and 12th & Madison — opened Sushi-Rama in December 2015 in the River North neighborhood as an ode [...]

New Sushi-Rama Opens At Belleview Station, Two More To Follow

New Sushi-Rama Opens At Belleview Station, Two More To Follow By every indication, Jeff Osaka does not sleep. The prolific restaurateur has enjoyed a long and busy tenure — putting in the work to become an important fixture of the city’s dining scene. With many openings and closings, the man has been tinkering, reshaping and revamping his concepts since he first opened the original 12 at 22nd and Larimer. Originally from LA, he arrived in Denver in 2008 with the specific intent of opening the downtown concept. He has since expanded to five current venues — [...]

Design Alert: RiNo’s Sushi Rama

Design Alert: RiNo’s Sushi Rama When chef Jeff Osaka set about concepting Sushi-Rama, his year-old RiNo hot spot, he wasn’t going for the minimalist, Zen vibe of most sushi shops. Instead, he and business partner Ken Wolf asked Denver-based LIV Studio to explore the modular look of the ’60s. They provided two key inspiration points—Austin Powers and Hollywood’s Cinerama Dome—before turning the design firm loose. “We kept it pretty vague,” Osaka says. “We wanted colorful and fun, and they went for it.” Principal designer Brandon Anderson dove into the kitschy history of “kaiten”-style (conveyor-belt) dining in late-1950s Japan and [...]

The House Smoked Ribs at Sushi-Rama are Worth the Wait

The House Smoked Ribs at Sushi-Rama are Worth the Wait "Kaiten zushi" is Japanese for "rotation sushi." Sushi-Rama is Denver's newest iteration of this restaurant style, with a conveyer belt rotating throughout the entire restaurant, bringing food directly to the tables. It's a fun way to eat, a pick-as-you-go adventure that keeps your options open. But there is a limited kitchen menu that people may not notice with all the delicious sushi passing them by. The house-smoked ribs are on that menu. "With this kind of restaurant, you can sit down and have food [...]
