Kissaki will open on Wednesday, Jan 27, next to Richards, in the space that formerly occupied Pierangelo and da sola.
Despite the pandemic, Kissaki owner Garry Kanfer has not slowed down, expanding to the Hamptons, Upper West Side and Long Island City last year and now Greenwich in 2021.

Executive chef Mark Garcia started his journey into sushi-making with a decade-long mentorship with Chef Kaze Chan of Sushi-san, who has a 30-year history of opening innovative sushi restaurants including Heat, Mirai Sushi, Kaze Sushi and Macku Sushi.
Chef Garcia has worked in numerous restaurant and hotel kitchens over his career including the Waldorf Astoria and The Wit and J.W. Marriott Chicago.
In 2014, he was able to rejoin Chef Kaze and Michelin-starred Chef Jeff Ramsey to collaborate and develop the menu and design for the sushi bar in Momotaro. This multi-dimensional sushi, izakaya and bar remain popular today.
In 2016, Chef Garcia debuted his modern omakase at Gaijin in Astoria, Queens. “Gaijin” translates to “outsider” in Japanese, and Garcia considers himself an outsider whose deep appreciation of the culture and craft ultimately led him to open his own restaurant. The term “outsider” is also a nod to Mark’s experience overcoming external doubts about his place in the sushi world. Rather than giving in, Chef Mark has embraced his role as an outsider and used the doubt as motivation to get him to where he is today.
