Sansei restaurant opens in Seattle Sunday

Hawaii restaurateur D.K. Kodama will open the Seattle outpost of his Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar on Sunday.

The 3,500-square-foot restaurant marks Kodama’s return to Seattle, where he entered the food-service business as a bartender in 1979. He opened the first Sansei, in Kapalua on Maui, in 1996. His D.K. Restaurant group now comprises four Sansei locations, Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar and d.k steakhouse in Waikiki.

Sansei Seattle is Kodama’s first venture outside Hawaii.

He had hoped to open by the end of 2015, and in August the restaurant guide Zagat named Sansei one of the city’s 10 most anticipated restaurants of the year. Kodama announced the new opening date in a news release Sunday.

The restaurant is located at Premiere on Pine, a 40-story apartment tower in downtown Seattle.
