After Deep Sushi/Deep Modern Izakaya didn’t work out in Noe Valley, the owners of Tataki Sushi and Sake Bar on California Street have officially opened their second location in the space this past weekend, TATAKI SOUTH. The menu will continue their focus on only serving sustainable sushi, although since there is a robata grill, they now have a yakitori section they’ve added as well. There are also even more vegetarian and vegan selections.
There are two rooms and a sushi bar with room for 12, although just the front room is open now with seats for 30—there will be seating for 55 (there’s the possibility of using it as a private dining room as well, TBD). The look is also similar, with pumpkin-orange walls, and even more reclaimed wood (they built many of the fixtures themselves), and water elements. Hours for now during the soft opening are lunch Mon-Fri 11:30am-2pm, and dinner nightly starting at 5:30pm, with the last seating at 9:30pm. Hours are subject to change as they gauge the needs of the neighborhood. 1740 Church St. at Day (between 29th and 30th Streets), 415-282-1889.
