Various Sushi News

Our usual group of spies, grifters, and thugs have provided subterranean sushi tidbits for this edition......

The (old) news that Austin may get a swanky "W" Hotel has heated up recently with news that their reps have been "talking" to various local sushi restaurants about partnering on the in-house sushi bar for the hotel. The "W" is expected to be built on Block 21 of the 2nd Street district.

And speaking of the 2nd Street district....that sign next to Taverna announcing the new Sushi Sake location is gone now, but nothing seems to be happening in the space. Any ideas? Let us know.

Uchi is going to expand their current location with a sister restaurant (separate entrance, sushi bar, etc) that will be reservation-only and have about 40 seats. Name to be determined.

Sushi Geisha has taken over the location formerly occupied by Arirang and across from the former Sake On Sixth.

Did we mention that Krispy Kreme doughnuts have landed in Tokyo?
