SILVER LAKE — A new Silver Lake Boulevard sushi restaurant is looking to hire a head sushi chef to oversee daily kitchen operations, reports Eater L.A. But the lack of a head chef did not stop Yakuza Sushi from holding a soft opening on Thursday, according to Yelp.
Per the first Yelp review:
The menu is exciting, and I’m looking forward to exploring it on future visits. The Chef’s special sashimi plates are what set Yakuza apart from other sushi restaurants in Los Angeles. They all sound fantastic, and the one we ordered (Yakuza Ceviche) was the highlight of our meal.
Eventually the Silver Lake restaurant will also be open for lunch, one employee said.
The building hidden behind bright red screens has been empty for about three years since Reservoir restaurant closed its doors.
