Now open to the public, Sushi Gakyu provides patrons an upscale dining experience serving traditional and modern-style sushi, sashimi and Japanese fish menus. Bethany Kazaba, Founder and Principal of Neighborhood Retail Group secured the new location which seats approximately 67 guests with an additional 24 seats outside as well as offers an Edomae Ginza-style chef’s table in which Chef Yoshi will create custom dishes based on guest’s preferences–the way sushi and sashimi are traditionally served in Japan.
