West Hollywood’s Cherished Kura Sushi Closes on November 26

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Eater Los Angeles) — Kura Fine Japanese Cuisine’s last day of operations will be on November 26 after 18 years of business in West Hollywood.

Owned by father-and-son duo Sonny and Daniel Son, the longtime sushi restaurant evolved over the years from a mostly roll-focused spot to a serious omakase destination, garnering a video feature on Eater’s acclaimed Omakase show earlier this year.

As most of you have heard, there is a massive redevelopment project to demolish our building and @kuraweho with it. Our last service will be Nov 26th, so please come and celebrate the last chapter of Kura with us. It’s been a helluva run to have been in business for over 18 years. Our family is forever grateful for your patronage and love. The hardest part of this last page in our chapter is saying goodbye to those we have made true genuine bonds with. Let’s make the last moments together a joyful one and please stay tuned for updates on a relocation 😊 Thank you @eater for featuring us on the Eater Omakase Series! Lots of 💕 sent to you all!! Also, a very special shoutout to @handonenine and @annieson_ for sacrificing so much over the years for the family business. Without you guys behind the scenes, none of this would even be possible and there would never be a @kuraweho 💯 Furthermore, we will be serving the Ganjang Gejang Nigiri until we close as part of our omakase 😊 Also, we highly recommend making reservations via Kura's telephone. 🗣We are open for DINNER ONLY, Mon-Thurs: 5:30pm-10:30pm and Fri-Sat: 5:30pm-11pm. See you soon friends 🥺 Link in bio if you’d like to see some behind the scenes footage at @kuraweho #familyrestaurant #eateromakase #omakase #ganjanggejang #kuraweho
