Chef Danny Niu
Chef Danny left his hometown of Shanghai in his teens to pursue a dream of becoming a sushi chef. He started from the very bottom and worked his way up in sushi restaurants in Japan. He left Tokyo for New York where he continued to learn all the trends and aspects of making great sushi but also adding his own signature to a traditional Japanese food. After years of apprenticeship he finally came to Denver, Colorado to start his own restaurant. Together with his wife and son (who also became a sushi chef) they opened Fontana Sushi. A comfortable neighborhood sushi restaurant that allows for creativity to flow and menu items to change constantly. His son, Chef Chen was groomed from a young age and now travels to China and Japan to learn the latest trends and ingredients that make sushi an ever evolving food.
