Emanuele Bombardier

“Gastronomy is the art of using food to create happiness and it always starts with the eyes,” says the Executive Chef of Matsuhisa Paris.

From Italy, but with a strong passion for Japanese cuisine, Emanuele Bombardier is the Executive Chef of Matsuhisa Paris since October 2022. Working for more than 15 years for Chef Nobu Matsuhisa in Europe and South Africa, he took the opportunity to move to Paris when Chef Nobu decided to open his first restaurant in France at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris in March 2016.

Alongside his brigade of Sushi Masters and facing the restaurant’s Omakase Bar, Emanuele fervently transcribes the Peruvian-Japanese cuisine taught by Nobu while bringing his savoir-faire and creativity. In 2019, Chef Emanuele Bombardier won the French Sushi Championship competition with great success, allowing him to move on with confidence at Matsuhisa Paris.
