Back in September 2021 we let you know that Kusshi, a popular sushi restaurant in Pike & Rose, would be opening a new location called Kusshi.ko in Downtown Silver Spring, taking over the location that was formerly occupied by Gusto in Downtown Silver Spring (8512 Fenton Street).
We have been told that the restaurant will be dropping the “ko” from its name due to approval issues with the signage and will now be going by the Kusshi name going forward. The restaurant will have a similar, but slightly more limited, menu as Kusshi in Pike & Rose. We are told it will definitely have all of the sushi items.
Kusshi in Downtown Silver Spring is hoping to open later this summer and is currently aiming for a mid/late July opening. Kusshi’s Arlington location is soft opening on Monday, June 27th at 1201 S Joyce St. A Vienna location is also planned for later this year. Below you’ll see an exclusive video of the Silver Spring location’s interior, taken by co-owner Wesley Yao.
