The Wall Street Journal reports that Larry Gagosian will open a Japanese restaurant, Kappo Masa, with the famed sushi chef Masa Takayama in the basement of his Madison Avenue space later this month.

The article is well worth a read. Gagosian first came to know Takayama on a sushi run with Microsoft’s Paul Allen and Robbie Robertson of The Band. Later he opens some wine sent to him by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, from their vineyard. Don’t sleep on this one!
