A sustainable sushi restaurant named Kyatchi will be coming soon to 3758 Nicollet Ave. S., according to Southwest Journal. (You might recognize the space as advertising "Just Turkey," thought that restaurant never opened; it was also previously home to Chelly's Café.) The team includes chef Hide Tozawa of Fuji Ya, co-owner Samuel Peterson (who managed First Avenue from 1996 to 2008), co-owner Sarah Peterson, and, as a consultant, well-known Twin Cities restaurateur Kim Bartmann.
The restaurant is committed to serving sustainable sushi, and is seeking certification from the Marine Stewardship Council. That means, Bartmann told Southwest Journal, no tuna rolls, as tuna is almost extinct. The menu will also include grilled meat skewers, udon noodles, and donburi (Japanese rice bowls topped with meat and veggies), as well as some less traditional options.
