Kyatchi brings its sustainable sushi and award-winning hot dogs to St. Paul

The first all-sustainable sushi restaurant in the Twin Cities is expanding.

The first all-sustainable sushi restaurant in the Twin Cities is expanding.

The team behind Kyatchi, which is located on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis, is bringing its sushi and hot dog joint across the river. This second location opened at 4 p.m. on Friday in the former Tanpopo space in St. Paul's Lowertown.

Kyatchi is the brainchild of siblings Sarah and Sam Peterson, and is backed by tireless Twin Cities restaurant mogul Kim Bartmann. Anne Saxton also acts as a consultant on the project, and Chef Hide Tozawa will lead the kitchen.

For the menu, expect much of the same that diners have come to love at the original Kyatchi: a focus on sustainable seafood, grilled meat and vegetable skewers, seasonally driven items such as traditional Donburi rice and vegetable bowls, and an assortment of small plates.

How do they ensure the seafood is sustainable? By following the guidelines set by the MN Zoo Fish Smart, Monterey Bay Seafood Watch, and Marine Stewardship Council Programs.

To keep it local and organic – a model Bartmann adheres to for all of her restaurants –Kyatchi plans to source ingredients from the neighboring St. Paul Farmers Market.

And of course, the restaurant's award-winning beef hot dogs will remain a key part of the menu. 

The St. Paul location has a full bar and will offer sake and Japanese whiskeys. Happy hour is daily, 4-6 p.m.

Kyatchi is located at 308 E Prince Street, St. Paul, MN 55101, next to CHS Field and the St. Paul Farmer’s Market. Here's a sneak peek from Mpls.St.Paul magazine.
