After more than two decades, Blowfish Sushi to Die For said goodbye to its longtime home at 2170 Bryant St. last fall.

In a note posted to the door, the owners said they planned to focus on their growing fleet of ramen restaurants, including Iza Ramen (237 Fillmore St. and 1155 Folsom St.) and Hell's Ramen (2193 Mission St.)

But now, Blowfish appears to be making a comeback. Capp Street Crap spotted a new sign for the business on the Hell's Ramen space at 18th and Mission streets, formerly home to Dante's Weird Fish.

A note posted to the restaurant's facade indicates a "resurrection of Blowfish Sushi from Hell's Ramen."

Representatives for Blowfish didn't return a request for comment. But public records also show that Blowfish has obtained an official beer and wine license for the space. And a post on Blowfish's Facebook page from last night asks: "Do you miss us? Well, stay tuned...!"

Fans of Blowfish may not have to wait long for its return, either: a Facebook post this morning encourages fans to save the date for this Friday, November 1. 

As for Blowfish's former space on Bryant Street, it's set to become a Korean restaurant from Michelin-starred Benu chef Corey Lee, with a likely opening date of next summer.
