Sakana Sushi Opens in Former Cafe Anthony Space in Cambridge

by Marc Hurwitz

A new sushi spot has come to Cambridge, taking over the space where a cafe had been until being seized several months ago.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Sakana Sushi is now open on Mass. Ave. in the former Cafe Anthony space, which is between Harvard Square and Central Square. A Yelp page for the place includes a note from the business saying that it offers "a reinvention of traditional sushi! discover the cozy sushi bar and experience traditional sushi with an intriguing twist." No menu has been posted as of yet, and the restaurant does not appear to have a website, so keep checking back for updates on what exactly will be offered at the place.

Cafe Anthony was shut down in June, with a sign out front indicating that it was seized by the Middlesex Sheriff's Department Enforcement Unit. A Facebook post from the spot stated that it hoped to reopen but it apparently never did.

The address for the new Sakana Sushi (and the former Cafe Anthony) is 983 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
