Signage has been installed at Kusshi Sushi, as the restaurant is working to open later this summer in Downtown Silver Spring.
We reported last year that Kusshi Ko would be opening in the space formerly occupied by Gusto Farm to Street at 8512 Fenton St. in the Downtown Silver Spring development. The MoCo Show reported in June that because of issues regarding approval of the restaurant’s signage, they dropped the “Ko” from the name and will now be known as Kusshi Sushi, similar to their location at the Pike & Rose development in North Bethesda.
Owner Wesley Yao — who also owns Hanaro Sushi in Bethesda, Poke Dojo in Bethesda, and Kusshi Sushi in North Bethesda — had previously said that the quick-service restaurant concept would serve donburi (rice bowls), ramen, poke, and sushi rolls, according to reports. However, with the name change to Kusshi Sushi, the menu will be a similar, yet abbreviated version of the Pike & Rose location.
Kusshi Sushi opened a second location earlier this month in Arlington, Va., according to The MoCo Show.
