Wu Chow co-founder opening sushi restaurant Toshokan in East Austin

Becoming a member of a rising variety of intimate sushi experiences which have sprung to life in Austin during the last a number of years, tiny omakase restaurant Toshokan (toshokanatx.com) will open its doorways for service March 2. 

Properly, the doorways won’t truly swing open. You’ll have to seek out them first. The six-seat sushi counter is discreetly hidden in one of many former rooms at East Austin’s Native (807 E. Fourth St.), a hiply styled former hostel that for the reason that pandemic started has served as a bar, café and residential to a number of small native companies (Black Fret, Eastend Tattoos) which have arrange store within the former bedrooms. 

C.Okay. Chin, a co-founder of downtown eating places Swift’s Attic and Wu Chow who has since left his operational function with these companies to work as a companion at Native, created the idea with government chef and companion Saine Wong, whom Chin met throughout Wong’s brief stint at Los Angeles import Sushi|Bar in East Austin.
