West Ave set to land sexy sushi bar Katsuya: Houston plans confirmed forcelebrity hotspot
After months of whispers, it looks like Los Angeles' chicest sushi spot is officially heading to Houston.
Katsuya by Starck mixes the menu of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and the dramatic design of Philippe Starck, and owner SBE Entertainment has finally confirmed an expansion to Houston, along with Laguna Beach and Miami, although it doesn't list an address or opening date. (CultureMap first reported that the celebrity-beloved Katsuya was scouting for a Houston location in January).
While the exact Houston location is still unofficial, sources say Katsuya will land at West Ave, taking a very large space. Based on that description, we think Katsuya might be snapping up the corner space across from Eddie V's. The lease hasn't been signed yet, but an announcement is set for any day now.
Are you psyched for Katsuya, or will you stick to Kata Robata, Uchi and others?
