A new sushi den has opened in Lakewood, and with its extensive sushi menu, full liquor license and elegant decor, it's a welcome addition to the westside food scene. Kazoku Sushi, located at 10665 West Colfax Avenue, quietly took the plunge at the end of September. And depending on how business goes, says Kevin Chen, speaking for owner Eric Xu, Kazoku might soon host a grand-opening party to introduce itself to the neighborhood. In the meantime, we stopped in to take this photographs of the new spot.
Once the restaurant is fully launched, Kazoku will be open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 9:30 p.m. Sundays.
