“AAichiban was already well-known in Chelsea and wanted to continue to serve their loyal clientele,” Mr. Galin said in a prepared statement. “The restaurant’s move to the new location allows it to remain prominent in the area as well as adopt a fresh look.”

Handler recently worked with another sashimi joint, the London-based chain Wasabi, as it finalized a 3,400-square-foot lease at 561 Seventh Avenue.
