Imamura, who is from Nagoya , Japan , says his lifelong dream has been to open a business in California (inspired by the Eagles' "Hotel California" and descriptions in Japanese magazines such as Popeye). In Nagoya, he ran a California-cuisine-inflected Italian restaurant called MoonGlow for 19 years.
