Red Sushi will be opening at 106 King St., formerly The Haze. Owner and chef Jack Yip hopes to have the place open within the next couple of weeks.
Right now, many details are being taken care of, like installing a new dishwasher. And Yip is still refining the menu, which he shows me on his phone. He scrolls through what looks like many pages, so when he says that he wants to offer "a complete menu," he's telling the truth.
The restaurant will be "mainly sushi," says Yip, but with "some grill dishes and some fusion." Some rolls will feature brown rice and some soy wrappers instead of the traditional seaweed. And look for Yip's omega roll (heavy on the omega-3s with smoked salmon and tuna).
Yip, formerly a sushi chef at Ginza, has just finished opening a new restaurant called Rice and Roll in Lutz, Florida, where some of his family lives.
