Houston is known for many culinary delights—barbecue, Viet-Cajun crawfish, tacos. It isn't particularly known for sushi—like some American cities on the West Coast—but that's changing with new and upcoming restaurant openings.
Earlier this month, chef Manabu "Hori" Horiuchi made a big announcement: For the first time since he debuted his acclaimed Kata Robata more than a decade ago, Horiuchi is opening his second restaurant, Katami. Kata Robata is a hot destination for Japanese food, serving ramen, salads and fire-grilled skewers as well as sushi. But at Katami, the star of the show will be sushi, which Horiuchi calls "my first love."
