During my previous Wasabi review, I ate pretty much everything off their menu, but I never really dove into the sushi offerings. The sushi didn’t originally catch my attention at Wasabi, but I don’t write these posts for my own personal enjoyment (yes, I do), so the addition of a Midtown establishment serving up individually wrapped pieces of sushi will obviously attract some attention. Craving something healthy(ish) for lunch, I zipped over to Wasabi to try out their sushi.

Well everyone, Wasabi Sushi & Bento is finally here. After a
little bit of super long wait, Wasabi has opened to the public. Last week, I had reported that they were open, only to find out that it was more of a “soft opening”. Despite reports from other Midtown Lunchers that they had given it a try, I decided to wait until yesterday for their official opening. I was a little too excited to give Wasabi a try, opting for only one bowl of Raisin Bran Crunch rather than my usual two. Armed with a ferocious appetite, I practically ran over to Wasabi Sushi & Bento to give it the official Midtown Lunch breakdown.
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.
