On Tuesday morning, we noted that Kotobuki was returning to 56 Third Ave. between 10th Street and 11th Street. Signs said they were reopening in August.
Well, that was a short wait — the sushi restaurant actually started service on Tuesday night.
Kotobuki, which has several Long Island locations, closed in the fall of 2014 after after two-and-a-half years in the East Village. (It was replaced by the more upscale Saki, an offshoot of Sushi of Gari.)
You can find Kotobuki's menu here.
