Sushisamba Vet Opening ‘Douzo’ Sushi Spot on Delancey Street

From java to Japanese, such is the storyline at 65 Delancey Street.

It is here, in the former home of the Berkli Parc Cafe that the owner of Lucky Cat, and onetime SushiSamba chef, is angling to open a new sushi spot called Douzo.

According to the questionnaire sent to Community Board 3 for liquor license consideration, Koji Kagawa teamed up with Chatchai Huadwattana of the Chace Restaurant Group, which is behind several Asian restaurants across the boroughs.

The six-table corner establishment will serve a short menu of soups and hand rolls, paired with beer and sake. Douzo will be open seven days a week, from noon to midnight.

Seen as a “young mom-and-pop” business, the Berkli Parc had been welcoming and a popular choice among locals. It opened in 2011 and survived nearly seven years, despite its location catty-corner from Starbucks.

Below is the sample menu for Douzo:
