According to a liquor license application uncovered by a What Now San Francisco investigation, the popular Dash Japanese and Sushi will be expanding to a second location in Noe Valley.
Dash Japanese Tapas and Sushi is a San Mateo-based sushi restaurant that has been operating for years at 204A 2nd Avenue in San Mateo, owned by Eric Deng and Edmond Tse. Deng, who also served as General Manager for Kama Sushi and V16 Sushi Lounge, appears to be expanding his Japanese tapas concept to a brand new neighborhood.
Deng has been an avid restaurateur for years and is passionate about providing the Bay Area with premium quality, freshly prepared sushi at an affordable price. A fusion between a casual restaurant and fine dining experience, Eric envisions his restaurants as the ideal location for a romantic evening with a date.
Established in 2012, Dash has been serving loyal San Mateo residents for nearly a decade. With fresh fish shipped directly from Toyosu Fish Market in Tokyo, Dash puts a priority on fresh ingredients. Now it appears that Noe Valley residents will get to experience the sushi that San Mateo has been raving about.
The license application lists 737 Diamond Street as the location for the new Dash, replacing the recently-shuttered Bacco Italian Restaurant. Located between Elizabeth and 24th Street, Diamond Street is an important restaurant district in the neighborhood and the new location should provide Dash with plenty of foot traffic.
While Eric could not comment on the intended timeline for opening, it’s clear that they are still very early in the process. They only secured the lease a few days ago and the team is still finalizing the menu and décor. In the meantime, be sure to visit Dash’s San Mateo location to get a taste of what the future has to offer.
