CHAYA: CHAYA has an unprecedented 390-year history of restaurants owned and operated by the same Tsunoda family both in Japan and California. CHAYA began under an enormous shade tree in Hayama, Japan, centuries ago, where they offered tea, sweets, and respite to weary horseback travelers. Today, there are two locations in Japan (Hikage Chaya and La Marée de Chaya) and four locations in California (Beverly Hills, Venice, Downtown L.A., and San Francisco). Famous for serving imaginative French-Japanese cuisine and for a tradition of unmatched hospitality, the company recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the CHAYA Brasserie in Beverly Hills. The 20th anniversary of CHAYA Venice takes place in April 2010, with the 10-year anniversary of CHAYA Brasserie San Francisco to follow in September. In September 2009, CHAYA joined forces with Careers through Culinary Arts Programs for a year-long partnership to help underserved high school students who are interested in pursuing a career in the hospitality and food-service industries get the education they deserve. CHAYA also operates three Los Angeles-area locations of its popular, casual macrobiotic eatery, M Café.
