The Post reports that the SBE group is opening a branch of their LA-based sushi restaurant Katsuya in Midtown. There are currently four locations in Southern California, all of them celebrity hot spots, and new outposts slated to open in Miami and Las Vegas this year.
Although no exact location or opening date has been announced yet, we can expect the same chic design from Philippe Starck, and a menu of top-notch sushi and Japanese food. SBE is the same hospitality group that brought Papaya King to LA recently. They're also planning two hotels in NYC, including one at 72 Sullivan St. in Soho. The new Katsuya will be a stand-alone project.
