We Sushi food truck to open restaurant in Menlo Park

 

By Elena Kadvany

We Sushi, which claims to be the Bay Area's first sushi food truck, is opening a brick-and-mortar Japanese restaurant on Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Menlo Park this fall.

Owner Thomas Yu snagged the lease at 605 Santa Cruz Ave. after Tokyo Subway closed in December. The Japanese restaurant had been a downtown staple for 30 years.

Yu said the new restaurant, Kyosho Japanese Restaurant, is a return to roots for him. Yu has been a sushi chef for more than a decade. Before starting his food truck, he worked in both fine-dining restaurants, including Ozumo in San Francisco, and more casual family-style establishments. Kyosho will be somewhere in between: "a modern while local-friendly restaurant," Yu wrote in an email.
