Nama Sushi
Opening in Oakland
Tomorrow - Thursday, August 14th
Grand Opening
Friday, August 15th

I cruised by the under-construction Nama Sushi House in the Dimond District today on Fruitvale Ave & Benati Way (across from Peet's Coffee) as I do most days hoping to catch a glimpse of what is going on in there.

I not only got a glimpse (all the window coverings are down), I also snagged an interview with John (one of the co-owners).  They are opening tomorrow - Thursday, August 14th for business.  They'll be having a Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, August 15th.

It looks good inside - still a lot of finishing work to be done probably late tonight!  They will have a wide menu, including a family friendly kids menu.  They have bought the building and plan to be in business in the Dimond for a long time and won't sell of the store in a franchizing effort.  They don't advertise, rather seeking to spread the new by word-of-mouth and by foot traffic (hence the decision to open across from Peet's Coffee).  This is there first store in Oakland (they currently have 2 restaurants in SF and one in Walnut Creek).  

Here's the interview (the end has a bad quality - sorry!)




See you there tomorrow.
