Three of LA’s top casual restaurants, Uovo, HiHo Cheeseburger, and KazuNori, will open next to each other at a new mixed use development on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Crescent Heights called Vision on Wilshire. The trio hopes to open some time in spring 2019, serving the exact same menus as the other restaurants. All three of the places are related to the Sugarfish sushi empire, with overlap in partners and founders, but they don’t officially fall under its domain.
Uovo and HiHo are adjacent to each other in Santa Monica and opened around the same time last year to high remarks. Uovo, which makes all of their pasta by hand in Italy before flying it over to LA, will mark its first expansion while HiHo, which first opened in Ojai, will also open its second location in the LA area. Meanwhile, KazuNori, the warm sushi roll restaurant that shot off from Sugarfish back in 2014, will complete the reasonably-priced trio in the building. KazuNori currently has locations in Downtown LA, Westwood, Santa Monica, and New York City.
HiHo Cheeseburger specializes in double cheese wagyu burgers with meat exclusively sourced from New Zealand. It’s great to see the synergy that these three restaurants will bring to this part of Mid-City, which isn’t a particularly great dining neighborhood but one that’s packed with residents and office workers looking for new options. Once they open, all three restaurants will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and there’s even free parking for diners in the building.
