This will be the first brick-and-mortar space for the quick-serve restaurant that offers various katsu sets, sandos (aka Japanese sandwiches) and sides.
Three East Village residents — Asher Sendyk, Chris Wagenlander and Hai Oliveira — are behind Evil Katsu, which got its start late last year as a pop-up ghost kitchen providing takeout and delivery on the Lower East Side.
The three hospitality veterans found themselves out of work during the pandemic last year and decided to start their own business on a month-to-month lease with the hopes that it would catch on. (It did.)
You can read our interview with Sendyk from December right here. You can follow them on Instagram for opening updates.
