Sugarfish, the popular LA-based sushi restaurant that recently made waves with its New York City expansion, has decided on its next location in California. Located just steps from the ocean in Manhattan Beach, Sugarfish goes into a prime spot where 12th and Highland used to reside.

Most recently Sugarfish co-founders have been busy working on expanding Kazunori, their affordable sushi roll restaurant, plus their flagship sushi place in New York City. Co-founder Lele Massimini also launched the handmade pasta counter Uovo in Santa Monica while next door, co-founder Jerry Greenberg spearheaded the rebirth of HiHo Cheeseburger.

This new Sugarfish in Manhattan Beach is the first time it’s ventured out of central LA here in Southern California and will likely serve the same menu of reasonably priced sushi omakase, plus nightly specials. There’s no opening timeline at the moment, though alcohol permits are now posted. Since the space was an existing restaurant, Sugarfish Manhattan Beach should be open before the end of the year.

Sugarfish. 304 12th Street. Manhattan Beach, CA.
