Sushi Zushi Christens New Southlake Location with Saké Ceremony

Adjacent to Victoria’s Secret in Southlake Town Square, Sushi Zushi’s newest location opened its doors on Saturday, August 20th and is now serving guests for dine in, take- out and delivery business.

Alfonso Tomita, President and CEO of the restaurant group, is a Mexican native of Japanese descent and pays homage to both aspects of his cultural heritage using his restaurant concept. Featuring a selection of over 300 menu items and 97 rolls, the cuisine fuses local Texas flavors with the traditional Japanese sushi concept. Jalapeño, Serrano chili, and cilantro are just a few of the flavors you’ll find incorporated throughout the extensive menu.

In addition to an unparalleled roll selection, Sushi Zushi offers a variety of cooked food as well. Rice dishes, noodle dishes, stir fry and traditional Japanese comfort food supply a savory sushi alternative for guests looking for something other than maki-zushi or sashimi.

Keeping with Japanese custom, Sushi Zushi will christen its new location with a traditional ceremony called kagami-biraki.

Kagami-biraki is a ceremony performed at celebratory events in which the lid of a sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone present. Kagami refers to the lid of the sake barrel and biraki means “to open” so kagami-biraki literally means “opening the lid.” Because of the lid’s round shape, the kagami is a symbol of harmony. The kagami-biraki, therefore, represents an opening to harmony and good fortune.

All eight of Sushi Zushi’s locations were christened in this manner and the restaurant’s top executives would like to extend an invitation to the public to view and participate in this exciting cultural event. It will take place on Saturday, Sept. 24th at 6:00PM.

Come celebrate with Sushi Zushi as it makes a home in Southlake. Get a taste of something new, and walk away with a little more knowledge about Japanese cuisine, culture and customs. For to know is not enough, one must also experience.
