As many of their devoted fans have known for quite sometime, Kaito Sushi will be celebrating their 3rd year of continuous operation this Saturday, February 16. After an incredible run of serving what I regard to be San Diego's finest traditional sushi, the folks at Kaito are staged to both figuratively and geographically turn the corner as they settle into a new location just a block away off of El Camino Real.
Much like the youth who wears his father's suit, they've made a valiant run of it for the first three years in a building that was ultimately too large to fit them well. But as the suit does not make the man, the ill-fitting building could not deter from the real gem of their operation, the incredible sushi served by head sushi chef Kazuo Morita and his loyal compatriot "Joe" Iwatani.
After they close the doors on their Encinitas Blvd. building for the final time this Saturday, they'll go dark for about two weeks and reopen in their new location. Though I do not have a specific date yet on their re-opening, the new address is now known: 130-A N. El Camino Real, in the Albertson's shopping center just north of Encinitas Blvd.
Here's a link to a Google Map and Street View of the new location: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&h...
