About Us

Hojoko is a rock n roll izakaya honoring the pulse of japanese nightlife by serving sushi, robata grilled yakitori and street food small plates paired with craft cocktails, premium sake, wine and beer. 

As soon as it is safe to do so, we will bring back the  live bands, spinning dj’s and karaoke that have accompanied our food and beverage since opening in 2015!

COVID-19 Protocols

We are incredibly happy to be reopening Hojoko. The outpouring of support we've received was overwhelming. Thank you so much for checking in on us. To say that the last few months have been challenging would be a huge understatement; but your emails, calls, texts, and Instagram DMs helped us weather that storm.

Now that we are in a position to open our doors, we do so with the safety of our staff and guests as our first priority. Below, you can find the safety procedures that we've implemented to keep you feeling safe and comfortable when you dine with us.

We are all in this together. Restaurant folks are a tough breed with kind hearts. We are used to having to work with a number of obstacles on a daily basis to do what we do. But we can't do this alone.

Restaurants everywhere need your help and cooperation to make sure that these safety procedures are actually effective. Please, whether you dine with us or at any other restaurant, wear your mask and follow the restaurant's safety guidelines so that we can continue to operate and provide you with warm hospitality for years to come.

- Chef Tim and Nancy Cushman
