There’s some great news from our friends over at Minneapolis’ premier sustainable sushi restaurant, Kyatchi. As it should so happen, they’re planning on opening up a second location on the other side of the river.
In a press release put out today, owners Sarah and Sam Peterson are taking over the old Tanpopo spot in Lowertown, St. Paul right near CHS Field. Along with the Peterson’s comes the full Kyatchi team including Chef Hide Tozawa, Kim Bartmann, and Anne Saxton.
Chef Hide Tozawa, who is an avid baseball fan, says that, “I’m excited to be operating next to CHS Field and the St. Paul Saints!”
Tozawa, of course, created Kyatchi’s signature hot dogs and potato salad as an homage to his love of baseball and we’re betting you’ll be seeing those show up in St. Paul too, so now you’ve got a new pre-Saints game destination. You can also expect to see a variety of seasonal dishes pop-up in the new location that utilize fresh, local ingredients from the neighboring St. Paul Farmer’s Market.
The folks behind Tanpopo recently announced their closing after 17 years and served their final dinner service on May 23rd. The new Kyatchi location won’t open up for business until late summer, however, it’s noted that there might be a pop-up or two along the way, so keep your eyes peeled folks to get in on some of that early sustainable sushi action in St. Paul!
