Oxbow Public Market Announces New Merchant Eiko’s Seafood Market and Sushi Bar to Open Fall 2014

Eiko's Napa

Oxbow Public Market, located at 610 First Street in the Oxbow District of downtown Napa, has announced that Eiko’s Seafood Market and Sushi Bar will open at the Market in late fall 2014. Eiko’s Seafood Market and Sushi Bar is the second location for Eiko’s Modern Japanese Cuisine, after their popular original location opened in downtown Napa June 2011.

“This is a new concept for us,” explained proprietor Rick Zaslove. “Eiko’s Seafood Market and Sushi Bar at Oxbow will present a full service seafood marketplace and sushi bar with Executive Chef Jake Rand at the helm. We will offer exquisite seafood by the pound, a sit down sushi bar, grab and go Japanese deli options, and Japanese beer and sake selections.”

Eiko’s Seafood Market and Sushi Bar will take over the Kanaloa Seafood space next to Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse, and across from Whole Spice and Napastak. Kanaloa intends to consolidate their wholesale and retail operations in Santa Barbara, where they are based.

Steve Carlin, Founder and CEO of Oxbow Public Market says, “We were looking for an ideal partner to come forward to offer top quality Japanese cuisine at the Market. We feel extremely fortunate that Eiko’s will not only fill that need, but will also maintain a superior retail selection consistent with the high quality products previously offered by Kanaloa Seafood.”

Eiko’s Oxbow location will offer classic sushi rolls, as well as specialty and seasonal sushi and sashimi offerings, both from the sushi bar as well as at the retail fish and seafood counter. Eiko’s freshly stocked signature sushi, salads, bentos, and noodle dishes will be available to go.
