KazuNori's Fancy Sign Goes Up While Protesters Fight Downtown Gentrification

New, 2 comments

Are the denizens of Downtown ready for the sushi roll extravanzga of 2014? Kazunori will breath upon the fury of pristine hand rolls starting August 4 right along Main Street in Downtown, but until then, passersby will have to ogle the bright red sign going into the 22 counter seat space. The highly anticipated eatery is situated right in the dominion of Tom Gilmore, the developer who owns much of the properties in Historic Core.

Today, around noon, a random protest broke out against Gilmore's overall gentrification, accusing the developer of "moving the poor" out of the area. KazuNori's not particularly expensive, but with roll menus reaching the high $20s, it's nothing compared to the uber pricey Zo that opened on the opposite block.

Despite the protests, Tom Gilmore has been credited with reviving the former sleepy part of Downtown known as Historic Core, with recent plans announced for an Old Bank District Museum headed to the corner of Main and 4th, reports Curbed LA.
