2011_bon_yagi1.jpgThe NYT pens an excellent profile of Bon Yagi, the restaurateur behind about a dozen places downtown, including Soba-Ya, Cha-An and Otafuku. Over his nearly 30 years in the business, he's brought many strains of obscure Japanese cuisine to the East Village, and he once owned a diner that was a favorite of people like Madonna and John Belushi. Click through for more on his career, and his recent, extensive work with the Dine Out for Japan Relief effort. [NYT]
