Look for the knives to come out again at Rochester's Sushi Nishiki.
Owner Sammi Loo says the sushi shop will re-open its doors for lunch at 11 a.m. Monday. This follows a short hiatus at the restaurant at 2854 41st NW that started in November. The previous closure was rumored as a transition to a new owner, but Loo remains as owner of the popular sushi eatery.
Loo says sushi fans will find familiar faces and a familiar menu at Sushi Nishki when they walk back in the door. However, she does plan to offer some special deals to welcome back her customers.
Sushi Nishki has a team of 8 to 10 employees on staff.
Loo and Lawrence Wong originally opened Sushi Nishiki in the Northwest Plaza, near IBM's hungry campus, in 2008.
In 2011, they also opened Impiana Kitchen and Sushi Bar at 318 S. Broadway — the former home of Sushi Itto/Katz's. Impiana Kitchen didn't find a niche on Broadway and that restaurant closed in 2013. Mango Thai soon moved into that spot and started cooking.
