Though it's technically only holding "soft openings" for now, sushi superstar Shiro Kashiba's new Sushi Kashiba is open seven days a week from 5 to 10:30 p.m. The restaurant in the former Marche Bistro and Wine Bar space at 86 Pine Street started serving a couple of weeks ago, though their official opening isn't until December 1, says Director of Operations Ed Kashiba.

Shiro, 74 years old, trained with Jiro Ono (of Jiro Dreams of Sushi) in Japan, then came to Seattle in 1966, and worked in the International District for several years (the now shuttered Tanaka Restaurant, the century-old Maneki) before running Nikko from 1972 to 1992, which he ultimately sold to the Westin Hotel. In 1994, Kashiba opened his namesake restaurant, Shiro's, in Belltown and just phased out of that restaurant completely last fall, telling Eater he was looking for a new place where he could "do his own thing."
