Visit Lowertown’s New Sushi and Hot Dog Hot Spot

Kyatchi Saint Paul’s also has plenty of Japanese whiskeys

Kyatchi has opened its second location in the former Tanpopo location in St. Paul’s bustling Lowertown neighborhood. The restaurant is the work of siblings Sarah and Sam Peterson with chef Hide Tozawa as well as Anne Saxton and prolific restauranteur Kim Bartmann.

Like the original location on Nicollet Avenue in the Kingfield neighborhood the restaurant will serve sushi using seafood chosen with sustainability guidelines set up by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch, the MN Zoo’s Fish Smart program and the Marine Stewardship Council Programs. Other dishes include a few Japanese favorites like miso and ramen along with several varieties of hot dogs.

Chef Tozawa is a huge baseball fan, so being this close to CHS Field, home of the Saint Paul Saints makes sense.

Sure to be a sweet stop before a Saints game

Unlike the original location, this spot has a full bar that is stocked with an impressive selection of sake and Japanese whiskeys. To sweeten the deal, there is a daily happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m.

Plenty of seats available
