It’s a team effort between Gavin Leung and Weida Chen, who’ve wielded knives at Zushi Puzzle, at Saison’s sushi pop-up with Jiro Lin, at Sushi Ran, at Ijji. You get it.

Especially since it’ll include three pieces of sashimi, 12 pieces of nigiri showcasing fish from the famed Tsukiji Market in Tokyo and supplements like sea urchin with caviar and silver flake. Yes, sake will also be involved.
And then there’s the à la carte menu for quicker meals, which might include toro caviar with gold flake and Wagyu beef with truffle.
Like most quick meals do.
