Katsuya is a Japanese restaurant based in California, popular for it's sushi operated by Chef Katsuya Uechi.

In The Muppets episode "The Ex-Factor" Kermit the Frog makes a date with Denise (through Yolanda) to the restaurant, and gives her a music box (through Miss Piggy).

In order to accommodate the actors and Muppeteers, a reasonable facsimile was produced with movable floors.[1]

To celebrate the episode, on November 3rd 2015 and through the rest of the week, the LA location sold special sushi rolls named after Kermit and Miss Piggy.[2]
