UPDATED: A Jiro: Dreams of Sushi-Inspired Meal at Kata Robata Disappoints

UPDATE: Ryan Snyder, Chief Operating Officer of The Azuma Group, contacted us about this story. After the jump is his unedited response to the piece, in its entirety.

Jiro: Dreams of Sushi is a fascinating movie about passion and work ethic. It also happens to feature a sushi chef. It could have just as easily been about a ditch digger or glass blower.

The Sushi Club of Houston helped sponsor the film and a dinner afterward at Kata Robata. I was not familiar with the Sushi Club, and became a member so I could get a spot at the dinner and understand what the club does. There are 4,213 members, and 45 were at the dinner (which is apparently very high for an event); there was also a sold-out crowd at the film.
