Capitol Hill is getting a new sushi place immediately — but you’re going to have to wait a bit for dessert. Seattle Met’s foodie blog noticed a note on Facebook from Broadway’s new Pinto Thai Bistro and Sushi Bar that they are celebrating their first hours of business on a Friday night:

We are done removing the dust and stocking our kitchen and are opening our doors tonight at 5pm. A new team, new chefs and a mix of Japanese and Thai food for the first time do bring a challenge, but we think we are ready and would love to have you over and try our food. We offer popular Thai and Japanese dishes and a …sushi bar stocked with a great selection of fresh wild fish.
You can enjoy Pinto Thai super chef Dave Nakamura’s sushi tonight. But if you want a sweet crepe for dessert, you’ll have to give the team behind Boom Noodle a month or two to put things together. CHS has learned that the company will be opening its second Tokyo Sweets walk-up shop inside the East Pike Boom a little over a month after the first shop debuted in University Village earlier this summer. Here’s how the Boom folks described the U Village Tokyo Sweets to Seattle Weekly:
Inside of Boom, with a walk-up window to the outside, we will be opening our first ever Japanese crepe stand. Super fun. Like the shops in Tokyo, people can walk up and order sweet or savory crepes. In addition, we will sell them in Boom, and they will also be on the breakfast menu (only not served in a cone).
No official time table yet for Tokyo Sweets but a Japanese crepe place slated for First Hill on Madison is planned to open in September.
