Chef Otto Phan and his Kyoten sushi trailer are on hiatus until January 13. When he reopens, it won’t be for long. Phan intends to close his excellent trailer for good on January 21. The shuttering is to make way for his new restaurant, Kyoten Sushiko, at 4600 Mueller Bld. in the Mueller development. Phan says the restaurant, which will feature omakase service, should open in March.

We named  Phan one of our people to watch in 2016. Check out who else made the list in arts, music, film and more here.
