Kusshi Ko Update in Downtown Silver Spring

by MCS Staff

Last September, we let you know that Kusshi Ko, a restaurant by the folks who have brought you Kusshi Sushi (Pike & Rose), Hanaro (Bethesda), and Poke Dojo (Bethesda Row), will be moving into the location formerly occupied by Gusto in Downtown Silver Spring (8512 Fenton Street).The restaurant has a hearing with Montgomery County’s Alcohol Beverage Services for a Class H, Beer and Wine License scheduled for Thursday, May 5th at 11:30 am as it moves closer to being ready to open.

Management tells us they know that sushi will be part of what the restaurant offers, but they’re looking into doing more than just sushi with the space. “We know it‘ll be more quick service style,” says owner Wesley Yao. He told us they are about 60% of the way done with construction and that he thinks the restaurant will open in the next 2-3 months, so a summer opening is very likely.

Gusto announced its permanent closure in January of this year and the ink is still drying on this contract with plenty of construction likely, so it’ll likely be a while before we see Kusshiko make its Downtown Silver Spring debut. You can follow the progress on their Instagram account, @kusshiko
