Culinary pioneer and Roy’s founder Roy Yamaguchi was born in Tokyo. It was while visiting his grandparents on Maui that he had his first taste of seafood bought fresh at seaside piers - fond memories that would shape his future career. Roy Yamaguchi is regarded as an international culinary visionary, creating fusion cuisine at his original Roy’s in Honolulu in 1988. Blending classic techniques with adventurous Pacific Rim flavors, he created an entirely new approach to fine dining. Today, Roy’s rich culinary tradition continues in Rancho Mirage. Our Chef Partner prepares Roy’s signature dishes with exacting precision, but the menu is also peppered with new, adventurous dishes and exclusive creations by Chef Joey Domingo.
