Shiro Kashiba’s Restaurant Finally Opens In Seattle

We’ve never been quite so jealous of the West Coast.

According to The Seattle Times, sushi legend Shiro Kashiba has finally opened his Pike Place Market eatery, Sushi Kashiba.

The soft-opening (grand opening to take place on December 1), has brought hundreds of patrons… and long lines way before its 5 p.m. call time — and it makes sense. Patrons were promised an opening this summer, which was then pushed back to October, and then finally, the end of November.

Not only will customers be able to enjoy some of the best sushi in town, they will also be able to enjoy real ambiance. Shiro’s son, Ed Kashiba, told The Seattle Times that the space is “immaculate… Just stunning views, obviously, of the Market as well as the Sound.”

In case you don’t know, Kashiba was trained by Jiro Ono (yes, that Jiro Ono), in Japan during the 1960s. It was said that the chef was going to retire, but clearly, he isn’t going anywhere, and we’re truly thankful for that.
