The brand has since expanded to a total of 30+ locations across the U.S. and Canada.
Tomonori Takahashi, who goes exclusively by Tomo, grew up in restaurants, his parents were restaurateurs in his native Japan. He traveled frequently to the U.S. and his dream was to open a restaurant in the Los Angeles area. He first opened a robata concept but quickly realized that ramen was one of the most popular menu items selling at his location – people were falling in love with the noodles! With his firsthand research and lifetime in restaurants, Tomo opened the first JINYA Ramen Bar in 2010 Studio City. It quickly garnered a passionate fan base, including many celebrities and Los Angeles A-listers.
