A treasured tipster alerted us to the impending expansion of Coronado's Saiko Sushi, which recently signed a lease for a new location in North Park (2884 University Avenue) at the corner of University and Granada.
Co-owner Evan Bennett, a North Park resident, told Eater that they looked for over a year before finding a suitable spot. The 3,200-square-foot space, previously a commercial business, will need an extensive remodel in order to be restaurant-ready; Bennett says that the yet-unnamed eatery should be open by November.
The menu will focus on craft sake and beer, with a 50/50 split between sushi and hot food dishes including some from Saiko's current menu.
