Gochi reopens in Mountain ViewUploaded: Jun 22, 2016
Mountain View favorite Gochi Japanese Fusion Tapas has officially reopened in a new location after an impending development forced closure of the original restaurant.
Gochi is now open at the Clarkwood Center at 1943 El Camino Real in Mountain View.
Gochi first opened at 1036 Castro St. in August 2013, just before a developer proposed a new new mixed-use, four-story project for the site at the corner of Castro and El Camino Real. Owner/manager Junko Motouji and her husband eventually received relocation assistance after they complained that they had spent their life savings on remodeling the interior of the restaurant, not knowing of the owner's development plans.
