Kyatchi will replace Tanpopo in Lowertown St. Paul

The shuttering of Tanpopo left a kimchi nabe-sized hole in Lowertown. But good news on its successor: Kyatchi is expanding to St. Paul.

Siblings Sarah and Sam Peterson, along with chef Hide Tozawa, and consultants Kim Bartmann and Anne Saxton, announced today that they will open a second location of their Eat Street sushi house on Prince Street next to CHS Field.

Expect much the same menu as the original Kyatchi: a focus on sustainable seafood, grilled meat & vegetable skewers, donburi rice & vegetable bowls, their fan-favorite hot dogs, and an assortment of small plates. They plan to make heavy use of whatever is fresh at the neighboring St. Paul Farmers Market. They’ll also have a full selection of Japanese whiskey and sake, and an events space for private parties.

Opening date is TBD, but sometime in the late summer. They’ll likely host a pop-up or two between now and then.
