The name of the restaurant, 4649 is a play on words as the numbers when read out loud read Yon-Roku-Shi-Ku, which sounds close to the Japanese word Yoroshiku. Yoroshiku means “pleased to meet you” or “kind regards”.
Hokkaido and Seattle share the same topography and climate, 風土 (fudo) so the chefs believe that the flavors used in the dishes mirrors what Seattleites enjoy.
“Yoroshiku” is the restaurants motto and promise to our customers that they can expect great food and great service.
Established in 2012
The owner Keisuke came to Seattle as a student and fell in love with the city. While in Seattle he noticed that the majority of Japanese restaurants specialized in Sushi or Teriyaki and he wanted to bring a more traditional feel to the Japanese restaurants in the area. Once deciding to open the restaurant he recruited his long time friend Koichi who brings with him decades of culinary expertise. Together they want to change the idea that Japanese restaurants are only Sushi and Teriyaki using their culinary expertise and innovative vision.
