Kikoo Sushi's second 1st Avenue outpost is now open

As noted back in the spring, Kikoo Sushi, the all-you-can-eat specialist currently at 141 First Ave. between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street, was opening a second outpost at No. 210 between 12th Street and 13th Street.

Anyway, that second location is up and running now.

The new restaurant also marks the Great First Avenue Sushi Merger of 2019 as Kumo Sushi is also part of this operation... which means the former Kumo space on the southeast corner of First Avenue at 13th Street is now vacant...

A reliable source told us that Kumo's lease was up ... and that for now, Kikoo will continue on at 141 First Ave.

As for No. 210, that retail space was home to a Papa John's (2010-2018) before the sushi rolled in.

H/T Steven!

Eh. I used to love stopping into Kumo after work, sliding into a booth on the side and people-watching while I ate reasonably-priced and decent sushi. A sweet set-up, and one that will be missed.

Honestly, I am skeptical. On their Yelp page, there are numerous one star reviews, at both locations. I went in here once a long time ago. Not sure if I am ready to return.
