Japanese restaurant, sushi restaurant, and sushi bar will reopen to visitors after the storm

A Japanese restaurant in San Francisco’s Marina district will reopen Monday after a nearly two-year hiatus.

Staff at the restaurant, Sushi Garden, announced Tuesday that they had reopened for business.

The restaurant was closed on March 1 after the devastating Superstorm Sandy, which left a massive hole in the city’s waterfront.

The owner, a Japanese chef named Kazuhiro Hiro, said he would reopen the restaurant as soon as he could get some new equipment.

The restaurant will serve sushi, chicken sushi and other traditional Japanese dishes.

The opening of Sushi Gardens is a big win for Hiro, who was also among those who had to relocate after Hurricane Irene hit the United States in 2012.
