KazuNori's Sushi Hand Roll Invasion Strikes Westwood Next

The faster, more casual Sugarfish outlet is opening its second location on a bustling spot.

Westwood is well on its way to becoming a bona fide dining destination all its own, with news today that the latest outlet of upscale casual Japanese hand roll spot KazuNori is swinging in soon.

Though there's no complete details at the moment on when Bruins and local office workers can expect to chow down on the refined hand rolls, this ABC license dating to the end of last month means things are well on their way. The smallish storefront sits on Gayley Avenue, tucked between ISO Fusion Cafe and Native Foods Cafe, right near the Hammer Museum, and of course will also include beer and wine.

Known for its simple menu and beautiful, spare interiors, Sugarfish offshoot KazuNori relies on simple set menus of three, four, or five hand rolls at a time, all for under $20. There are a la carte options as well, but really the focus is on quality fish and expediency, combined with lunch, dinner, and late night hours.

When KazuNori opens in Westwood in 2016, expect a similarly slick vibe to the Downtown location, with a couple dozen stools for in-and-out eating.
