When Menlo Park's Kaygetsu restaurant closed in September, owners Keiko and Toshi Sakuma weren't quite sure what would come next for them.
But according to the San Francisco Chronicle, Steve Jobs didn't let them wonder for long. Before his death, the entrepreneur convinced Mr. Sakuma to take a job in Cupertino as a sushi chef at Apple headquarters.
Ms. Sakuma said in an online forum post that Mr. Jobs made the offer while eating lunch at Kaygetsu, after somehow finding out that the restaurant was for sale. "Steve has been very good to us, being one of our regular customers for many years. We didn't treat him any different from other customers; and I regret that I had to turn him away many times when we didn't have seats for him and his guests. But, I think he liked the fact that he wasn't getting any special treatment," she wrote.
