Kinjo Finally Reopens on Polk After Flood Last Fall

Poor ~KINJO~ on Polk Street had to close barely a year after it opened (and JUST after it earned a Michelin star) when a flood from the upstairs neighbor closed them down—for months. But good news, it has reopened, albeit with some changes. Eater writes that Takatoshi Toshi (Sushi Ran) has departed the project and is opening his own thing in Marin (Masa’s Sushi and Appetizer in Novato). Helming the sushi counter is guest chef Fujii Tahahiro of Japan, offering omakase sushi and a kaiseki menu. (Sushi bar seating is reserved for the full kaiseki menu, $135 per person, and table service is $80 per guest.) Open Wed-Sun 5:45pm-9:30pm. 2206 Polk St. at Vallejo, 415-921-2222.
