Katsuya by Starck, a Los Angeles sushi hot spot, is coming to Laguna Beach.
After nearly five years of scoping the area, the SBE Restaurant Group finally found its fifth location at 858 S. Coast Hwy.
Executive Chef Daniel Elmaleh is looking forward to the new restaurant, which the group plans to unveil in June.
Elmaleh is the executive chef for all SBE restaurants, including Gladstone's, Abbey Food & Bar, Hyde, Industry, the Colony and Cleo.
"We're so excited about this location," he said. "I think it's the only Katsuya we have that's so close to the beach."
Katsuya has locations in Brentwood, downtown L..A, Glendale and Hollywood. They're opening two more locations in Miami and Houston in the coming months.
