Known for its approachable omakase and tight menu of rolls and small plates, Ichi Sushi went dark when the pandemic hit and announced its permanent closure in June 2020. But one year later, there’s good news for the Bernal Heights neighborhood: the space has a new tenant who plans to continue the legacy of quality sushi at 3369 Mission Street. Chef and owner Erik Aplin expects to open Chīsai Sushi Club in September, reviving the 500-square-foot restaurant with an infusion of handrolls and sake. It’ll be a sort of homecoming for Aplin, who worked with Ichi Sushi owner Tim Archuleta as chef de cuisine until 2015, in addition to having spent time at standout SF sushi restaurants Akiko’s and Robin.
