Wasabi Sushi & Bento is OPEN! Well… Almost
Wasabi Sushi & Bento, which was originally planning to open in Spring 2013, has finally opened (almost). I walked by yesterday, and there were people walking in and out of the front door. I figured a review was necessary, so I walked towards the front door when I was greeted by an employee asking if I had an “invitation”. I didn’t, of course, but it looked like a lot of other people did. She informed me the official opening was tomorrow (today), so I took a quick peak inside and went on my way. It’s very modern and clean, with plenty of employees on hand. I’ll be sure to get there today for a full review. Wasabi Sushi & Bento is on the corner of 40th and 7th Ave. More info on Wasabi, and another picture, after the jump.
UPDATE: I was misinformed, this is merely a soft opening for “friends and family”. The official grand opening will be next Monday, February 24th. Rest assured, I will save my appetite until then.
Wasabi is a London-based Japanese “fast casual” restaurant chain, with this being their very first location in the United States. The selection at Wasabi will vary widely, ranging from individually wrapped pieces of sushi to bowls of ramen. The individually wrapped pieces of sushi will allow people to pick & choose their selection, and I’ve heard the prices are perfectly reasonable. I have been checking out Wasabi’s UK website and the menu items look awesome. I’m looking forward to trying it out.
