Bringing over 15 years of sushi restaurant experience into your home, his passion is creating a custom tailored intimate dinner you will never forget. TAHOE PRIVATE CHEF was founded following Josh's time spent in Japan in 2017. Based in Truckee and serving the greater Lake Tahoe area.
Fresh shipments arrive for each dinner, so you don't get the old fish they're trying to get rid of at the sushi restaurant. Local fish is usually caught between Mendocino and Morro Bay and shipped to Truckee directly from Pier 45 in San Fransisco. Japan product is flown in overnight, usually from the Toyosu fish auctions in Tokyo.
There are no set menus- each menu is custom tailored to each particular group. The most rare and exotic products can be sourced with enough advance notice! Alternatively- if there are kids or guests who are less adventurous, the menu and service style can be adjusted to suit.
Billing is based on labor time plus cost of ingredients, rather than by per-person. The price will vary based on your menu choices and service style- every event is unique. Please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to make an inquiry.
OMAKASE means "I'll leave it to you!" It's what my favorite clients say at the sushi bar. Some clients will prefer to leave the menu up to the chef. Or request your favorites! Accommodations can be made for children or those who prefer cooked food.
When I bring service staff, you can enjoy the party with your guests. Serving the Truckee/ North Lake Tahoe/ Reno area.
