We’ve learned the vacant space above Chiso sushi restaurant is about to reopen. Showa, formerly Kappo, has just applied for a liquor license in the Peck Building at 701 N 36th.
Chiso will soon have a new neighbor upstairs
Earlier this year, Taichi Kitamura sold Chiso and closed the upstairs intimate Kappo before opening a new place on Eastlake. Kitmura’s name is on the liquor license application for Showa, so it appears he will be making a return to Fremont. In fact, this summer he told our news partners at the Seattle Times that he might turn the place into an izakaya.
