Kenichi to Close at the End of April

The restaurant's ten-year lease is up.

Kenichi, the Victory Park sushi restaurant, will close at the end of April.

“It has been a great run and we are thankful to our guests for their loyalty all these years,” says co-owner Josh Babb. “We are excited to move on to another phase with fresh, new concepts in different locations and look forward to what the future brings.”

According to the release:

“Kenichi’s ten-year lease has come to an end and the owners wish to thank their guests by offering 50% off food and sushi for the month of April. Babb announced earlier this month that Musumé, a sophisticated yet casual, full-service contemporary Asian restaurant, will join Stephan Pyles’ Flora Street Café as the second restaurant at HALL Arts in the Arts District. The 5,000 square foot restaurant with a name that means ‘daughter’ in Japanese is scheduled to open November of 2017.”
