Sushi Buffs-sushi chef Sachio Kojima

I don't know this chef, do you? Here will be at Isa making nigiri and maki rolls for three months.

I am curious. I have never been to Isa which is a Contemporary French any reports?

And have you been to Kabuto A&S when Mr. Kojima was chef there?

This was in the SFGate Jan.2nd-

"Welcome return: Those who were devoted to sushi chef Sachio Kojima might want to hightail it down to Luke and Kitty Sung's Isa (3324 Steiner St.), where the former chef of Kabuto A&S (5121 Geary Blvd.) will be a guest chef.

Three years ago, after Kojima's wife became ill, he sold the restaurant and moved to Mount Shasta, where he opened Vivify, focusing on organic Japanese food and vegetables.

With his wife in better health, Kojima will take over the front room of Isa for three months to serve nigiri and maki rolls. Sung will keep his own menu going in the back of his Marina district restaurant.

"This man devoted a big part of his life to the sushi scene in San Francisco," says Luke Sung, "and I'm totally psyched that he's coming here."

Expect to see Kojima in the dining room by Jan. 14.
