The owners of Kappo at East End Market (Facebook) have announced that they will be closing their crowd-favorite sushi restaurant this December.
We recently wrote about Kappo HERE when they were rallying their supporters to fight a DBPR policy that would have them install a sneeze guard in their restaurant. Ultimately the state agency backed down and they did not have to install anything.
The unique seven-seat restaurant will be replaced with a convenience store, patterned after a Japanese konbini market. Konbinis are like 7-Elevens but with more variety.
According to a report by the Orlando Sentinel, the owners are looking for a new home for their Kappo concept.
A local author, Michael Cuglietta, looked into the full story HERE.
Here’s a slightly inappropriate yet appealing song about Konbinis by the Japanese duo Boxers and Trunks.
