A new Japanese sushi restaurant is preparing to open in Allston.
Ittoku plans to open at 1414 Commonwealth Ave., according to signs posted in the storefront.
Local news blog Universal Hub reported last fall that the owners of the sushi restaurant hoped to move into the location.
The space used to house Petit Robert Bistro, a small, local French restaurant chain which has four other locations in downtown Boston, the South End, Kenmore Square and Needham.
