Sushi Nozawa, LLC Opens KazuNori - The Original Handroll Bar - Today in Downtown LA

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sushi Nozawa, LLC, known for SUGARFISH and the Nozawa Bar, is pleased to announce the opening of KazuNori, The Original Hand Roll Bar, on August 5. The sushi restaurant, the first of its kind, will specialize in hand rolls.

KazuNori will focus on the experience of eating hand rolls that feature the freshest fish from the oceans' waters and Nozawa's signature warm, loose rice. "Eating a hand roll that's passed to you from the chef just moments after it's made is truly something special.  We think that experience is worthy of its own restaurant, so we created KazuNori," said Tom Nozawa, one of the founding partners of Sushi Nozawa, LLC.

Known as temaki, hand rolls are similar to the more common cut sushi rolls, except hand rolls are not cut. Hand rolls are best enjoyed quickly after they are made for optimal taste and texture. At KazuNori, the hand rolls are made with the highest quality nori and are served to each patron by the sushi chef within seconds after they are prepared so guests can experience hand rolls where the nori stays fresh and crisp.

In addition to hand rolls, KazuNori's menu also offers a daily sashimi dish, as well as cut rolls for guests who want to eat in the outdoor patio or take their meal to-go. KazuNori's dishes are the same high quality dishes that guests have come to expect from SUGARFISH. 

KazuNori's hand roll bar will seat 25 guests, and there will also be a to-go bar and an outdoor patio for guests to eat outdoors.  

The restaurant is located in downtown LA at 421 Main Street. According to Tom Nozawa, "Because Los Angeles is considered by many to be the epicenter for of America's sushi culture, we think it's only natural that we would open KazuNori, The Original Hand Roll Bar, in downtown LA." 

KazuNori hours are as follows:

Monday through Thursday 11:30am - 11pm; Friday and Saturday, 11:30am - midnight; and Sunday 12:00pm - 10pm.
