Sushi St. Mark's 2Alexa Mae Asperin

St. Marks Places may have lost Natori, but it’s gaining another Japanese spot.

In the next couple of weeks, Kura will begin serving sushi and sashimi at a 10-seat counter in the former home of Mohamed Falfel Star, at 130 St. Marks Place.

Huey Cheng, who is involved in the project, told The Local that Kura (meaning a place to store valuables) will be open daily for lunch and dinner.

An early sample menu submitted to Community Board 3 included items such as tuna with grated mountain yam, clams cooked in a sake broth, grilled duck, fried oysters, and various assorted vegetable dishes.
