Other Mama featuring Executive Chef Dan Krohmer

Executive Chef Dan Krohmer at the Las Vegas Food & Wine

Dan Krohmer grew up in Placerville, California and began his culinary journey in nearby Sacramento at Mikuni Japanese. His unplanned path to prestige began during a vacation in Japan, where he connected with a friend whose family ran a restaurant in remote Kumamoto and decided to stay and work for nearly two years, learning the disciplines of sushi and kaiseki on the job. Krohmer’s next step took him back to Sacramento in farm-to-table restaurants, where he furthered his appreciation for quality ingredients and simple preparation, before he was recruited to join the team at Morimoto, Philadelphia as sous chef, executive sous and sushi chef. Seeking another change, Krohmer took an opportunity with a catering company serving musicians at Coachella, Vans Warped Tour, and on tour with musical acts including Taylor Swift, Neil Young, Jay Z, Godsmack, Metallica among many others during the warmer months, and cooking at Viceroy Anguilla in the winters. After a few years of that, planting some roots seemed like a good idea, so he came to Las Vegas and spent some time with the legendary Michelin starred Takeshi Omae before opening his original concept Other Mama in March, 2015. Within its first year, Other Mama has garnered an impressive number of accolades including Best Restaurant, Off Strip twice (Vegas Seven and Desert Companion); “Best Dream Come True” (Las Vegas Weekly ”Best of Las Vegas” 2016); Neighborhood Restaurant of the Year (Eating Las Vegas); Bartender of the Year, 2015 (Eater); Best Restaurant Cocktails (Vegas Seven).
