Carl Rosa of The Sushi Club of Houston has informed us that he visited Kubo’s Sushi Bar & Grill at 2414 University only to find a "closed" sign.

According to Kubo’s website, Yoichi "Yogi" Ueno founded the traditional Japanese restaurant more than 14 years ago. The kitchen was most recently helmed by chef Shunpei Takizawa.

Kubo’s was also notable as the first restaurant where Manabu “Hori” Horiuchi worked in Houston before moving to Azuma Group’s Kata Robata. He's since been a James Beard semifinalist four times. 

The sign states an intention to relocate and reopen Kubo’s in the future. An employee at sister restaurant Café Kubos says she’s “not sure” if the original Kubo’s really will reopen and that she’d “have to ask about that.”

We requested a call back from the owner and if we get more details, we’ll update this article.
