Emi and Marie
Fusing their Japanese heritage, hospitality backgrounds and a love of Yakitori, co-owners Marie and Emi established Bird’s Nest Restaurant in August 2013. With over 10 years experience working in the hospitality industry respectively, Marie and Emi took a leap of faith and opened Bird’s Nest Restaurant to share Japan’s unique culinary traditions with the Australian community.
Both having travelled to Japan to study the art of Yakitori. Marie and Emi spent time shadowing trained Yakitori chefs, learning all there is to know about the age-old cooking methods. Equipped with their new-found knowledge and skills, they both returned to Australia and a year later Bird’s Nest Restaurant’s home in West End was uncovered. Using white charcoal that had been imported from Vietnam, Marie and Emi began experimenting with Australian produce and the rest, as they say, is history!
