Niki Nakayama is the talented chef and owner behind n/naka, the 2 Michelin star restaurant in Los Angeles. She specializes in a modern version of kaiseki, the most formal way to dine in Japanese cuisine. Through this approach, Chef Nakayama pulls from different cooking methods throughout the meal to highlight an ingredient that speaks to the season and its beauty. With each dish, she makes the kaiseki tradition her own by featuring local California ingredients and influences.
In 2022, Chef Niki Nakayama and Dom Pérignon meet in a creative encounter inspired by mutual respect for nature, harmony, and contrast.
