Candyfish Gourmet Sushi Bar to Open Inside Union Delray Beach

It's said that Sukiyabashi Jiro -- a small yet revered establishment tucked away in a Tokyo subway -- is considered to be among the best sushi restaurants in the world. Run by 86-year-old shokunin Jiro Ono, a man now considered a national treasure by the Japanese, the restaurant's menu is best served traditional omakase, a chef's tasting that will easily run you a few hundred dollars.

Scott Kennedy and Stephen Chin -- owners of Delray Beach's Union -- are keeping Sukiyabashi Jiro in mind as they open Candyfish Gourmet Sushi, a "gourmet" sushi bar inside their Asian fusion gastro-lounge with a grand opening slated for October 13. Their goal: to offer world-quality sushi, but for a fair price.
