This comes on the heels of Yoyogi, a very popular sushi restaurant in the Kentlands, announcing the opening of a second location in the development (word is the original location will become carry-out only after the new location opens).
The restaurant will be owned by longtime Raku chef, Ken Ballogdajan, and his sister, Aki Ballogdajan. According to the article, the siblings grew up on their parents sushi restaurant Kioko, which had locations in Cleveland Park and Frederick.
The 1,800 foot restaurant is expected to open this summer at 706 Center Point Way, next to Starbucks. That location was formerly home to another sushi restaurant, Hakuba.
