KazuNori, the hand roll concept coming out from the SugarFish/Nozawa empire, is planning to debut August 5 in Downtown's Historic Core, reports the LA Times. The diminutive space features just 22 counter seats, with a heavy emphasis on take out. A small paper menu features a slew of hand roll combos, plus some a la carte options.
Of course, the warm rice-filled blue crab hand roll is a big part of the menu, but one can't help but chuckle at the notion that Nozawa, who championed nigiri sushi in the face of the once ubiquitous California and crunch roll action across L.A., opening a sushi roll-only spot years later. Just like Petit Trois (also counter seating only), KazuNori features no reservations, with service commencing at 11:30 a.m.
