A tablehopper reader let me know the unfortunate news that just after winning their first Michelin star and just shy of a year of being open, the fantastic KINJO on Polk suffered severe water damage from a flood (from an apartment neighbor above). It’s so bad that the restaurant is saying they will be closed until January 15th for repairs, and I’m hearing it will possibly be even later. I’ll keep you posted on repair timing. In the meantime, their sister restaurants Ijji SF, Saru Sushi Bar, and Seiya Restaurant in San Carlos remain open. 2206 Polk St. at Vallejo, 415-921-2222.
