ECHO PARK — A new sake and yakitori bar has opened in the former Cortez restaurant space near Sunset Boulevard and Allison Avenue. Kush Sake Bar, which is connected to Ji Taek Lim, owner of Silverlake Ramen, opened recently without much fanfare. We don’t have details about the menu, only that sake and yakitori are now being served in a spot where pricey small plates once ruled at Cortez. “Not open for lunch just yet, but everything we ate was delicious and fairly priced,” according to one Facebook post.
Will Echo Park craft beer fans develop a taste for sake?
