After noticing the old nightclub behind Sushi-A-Go-Go's new Airport Blvd location seemed to be getting a bit of a facelift, Eater reached out to owner Kayo Asazu to see what the story was. Turns out she and her husband/partner Take are opening a brick-and-mortar, but it's not going to be a direct translation of their trailers.
Kom? will be an authentic Japanese restaurant (they're even working with a designer and carpenter from Japan), and will serve an "expanded sushi menu as well hot kitchen items and small Izakaya style plates." Coming this Fall. Here are the details, straight from Asazu:
We are planning to open our first restaurant in the building. Since it is very old place, the place needs some fixing, and updating which we are working on right now with my designer and carpenter we invited from Japan.
At this point, we can't give you good prediction for opening date, but it should be sometimes by this fall.
And this restaurant will have different name from Sushi-A-Go-Go with not only current sushi rolls menu but also, other Japanese authentic menu from kitchen.
Meantime, we will keep our two trailers keep running and at the same time, my husband and business partner Take will also stay working for UCHI.
We are planning to serve expanded sushi menu as well hot kitchen items and small Izakaya style plates.
