Hai Street Kitchen at 40th and Sansom Street is now permanently closed. Known for its urban made–to–order sushi burritos, Hai Street Kitchen opened at University City in the winter of 2014. Owners posted a note on the restaurant door, announcing its closure and reiterating its appreciation of its customers’ patronage over the past three years.
This stylish fusion eatery never gained overwhelming popularity among Penn’s student body, though. Marvin Morgan (C ’21) only realized that this restaurant was on campus after hearing about its closing. Meanwhile, three other locations of Hai Street Kitchen are to remain open—18th St, 16th and Chestnut St, and King of Prussia.
This is a breaking story and will be updated as further details emerge.
