About Evan's American Gourmet Cafe:

Jimi is a recent returnee to Evan's, having worked here for eight years between 1993 and 2001. Starting as a pantry cook, Jimi worked his way up to Sous Chef. Subsequently he left to pursue opportunities elsewhere, including brief stints at Aqua and Chez Panisse in the Bay Area. He came back to us in May 2007 and his maturation process has been completed; his accomplished techniques and creative flair are clearly evident now in our cuisine. Jimi was born the son of a chef in Kauai, Hawaii, and grew up cooking with his dad, beginning his work in commercial kitchens at the age of sixteen. Jimi gained his French-Classical training here years ago and studied under several of our previous very proficient Chefs. His Asian flair is just natural, a gift of his ancestry, and it lends itself to a perfect blend of Pan-Asian and Classical flavors. Jimi loves to create new presentations for his own style. He combines the most desirable elements of a Chef, passion and creativity, an eye for stunning visual presentations and a gift for seasoning and balancing intensely flavored components. Although he really lives food, he likes to find a little time to indulge in his favorite hobbies, golf and fishing. Jimi's star is on the rise here at Evan's, and we're all so pleased to be able to watch it shine.
