          Yeah... I wondering the same thing. It was listed in yesterday's NY Magazine. I live on 48th St. and walk by 9th ave. every day, and have never seen this place. Is the front covered by a plywood door that juts out into the sidewalk? What's the deal with this place???

            I too saw it in NY magazine and was curious about it as I will be in NYC in December.

            I emailed them and they said that they'll be opening in early October.

                  Grub Street said that they were having a soft opening, so I went by today. The door was unlocked, so I opened it and was confronted by a dark room and drills and power tools all around my feet. Pretty soft opening.

                    I just did a google search and found their Web site: http://www.kyotofu-nyc.com/
                    Not much there, though funny enough they have all the press items written about their coming.

                    Grand opening is on Nov. 6 according to the site.
