Executive sushi chef Craig Amidon has announced that he is joining Sushi Leo in Longmont to work for master sushi chef Mori.

Mori had been a co-owner and head chef at Sushi Tora in Boulder before opening up Sushi Leo two years ago. Amidon had worked for Mori at Sushi Tora for four years and later at a restaurant in Superior before taking over chef duties at Magnolia/95a in Lafayette.

Rejoining master chef Mori will mean more than 60 years of combined experience in sushi and Japanese cuisine behind the counter at the Longmont restaurant, located at 2315 Clover Basin Drive.
