A Downtown Boston restaurant full of trendy sushi burritos and poke bowls will open a counterpart in Allston. New Sushi, Inc. has taken over the former Mixx Frozen Yogurt shop at 66 Brighton Ave. and could open soon within the new space. (See update below.)
New Sushi first opened nearly a year ago at 106 Cambridge St., near Government Center. The concept is the work of local restaurateur Henderson Li, who is also behind Nijiya, an all-you-can-eat sushi spot in Medford, and Hoshi-ya in Brighton, as previously reported.
The restaurant embraced what were, at the time, two rapidly expanding trends in Boston: The menu features variations on both poke bowls and sushi burritos, giving diners the chance to choose from proteins such as tuna, shrimp tempura, and grilled chicken as fillings for either entree, with further customizations available in terms of toppings and sauces.
New Sushi’s Facebook page offers a preview of the new Allston space, which is already filled with tables and a menu board. Stay tuned for opening details.
Update, 2/8/18, 11:45 a.m.: New Sushi, Inc. opens tomorrow, February 9, at 5 p.m.
