Photo by Troy Fields Respected sushi chef Chris Kinjo is establishing a new (and hopefully stable) place in the Museum District.
He may be Houston's unluckiest chef when it comes to keeping a restaurant open, but it looks like sushi master Chris "Magic Fingers" Kinjo of MF Sushi, will ultimately find stable ground. Alison Cook at the Houston Chronicle reports that he has signed a lease on his own sleek, modern restaurant in the Museum District at 1401 Binz. It will be located in the mixed-use Museum Point Professional Building.
MF Sushi has been a weird, wild ride. It opened to acclaim in the Galleria area in December 2012. Just 10 months later, it was damaged after a fire and shut down. This past spring, MF Sushi finally reopened and critics and sushi fans alike rejoiced, only to be crushed again when it closed this past October for "reorganization." MF Sushi is open again, but this time it's without Kinjo in the kitchen.More »
