Japanese restaurant Kyojin is now open at 3315 Cady’s Alley NW, in the former L2 space. The 130-seat restaurant is helmed by Bangkok-born chef Saran “Peter” Kannasute, who is known for his sushi and omakase menus – with fresh fish flown in overnight from Japan. In addition to a wide variety of sushi and raw fish specials, including a make-your-own roll option, the menu features hot dishes including gyoza with wagyu beef and salmon teriyaki. The space was designed by Miami-based Francois Frossard Design, and includes a sushi bar, and a sake tasting counter that will host tastings, classes and pairing dinners. Additional space will be added over time to accommodate private events, and a 10-seat omakase counter.
