Of course it takes leaving my neighborhood of 22 years to get a quality sushi place to open a block from my apartment—at least it will be there when I return to SF! We previously mentioned JU-NI was coming to the former Candybar, and Hoodline reports it’s now holding a soft opening.
The chef is Geoffrey Lee, most recently at the excellent Akiko’s on Bush. Look for an omakase format ($85, 12 nigiri selections, 15 courses in all), plus a full wine list put together by Justin Chin of Jaedin Markus Cellars. Open Mon-Thu 5:30pm-10:30pm, Fri-Sat 5:30pm-11:30pm. 1335 Fulton St. at Divisadero, 415-655-9924.
