Back in September, we ran the rumor that Yoshi Tome of Sausalito’s SUSHI RAN was opening a casual concept in the former Pesce in the Castro. While they couldn’t confirm it at the time, we heard from the team that the project is happening and will be “fun, sophisticated, casual Japanese, with a full bar.” They hope to open in early spring of 2016. And while the Sushi Ran team didn’t share a name with us, one of our sources said it will be Nomica, which means “drinks house.” We’ll see how that maps out and will keep you posted. 2223 Market St. at Sanchez.
