New sushi restaurant planned for Lake Lorraine

Aug. 7, 2019

A sushi and hibachi restaurant is planning to open at Lake Lorraine.

Sakura Sushi has started work on a space along Marion Road that used to be Toppers Pizza.

It’s a second location for the operators who run Fuji Sushi Express in The Empire Mall.

“They picked that location due to the lack of that type of restaurant being in that area, and recently Lake Lorraine is exploding, which is good for business,” said Ashley Dunham of Jim Dunham & Associates, who represented the restaurant.

They plan to offer many varieties of sushi rolls, including tempura-style, as well as hibachi meals, she said.

The hope is to be open by Sept. 1.

Toppers closed about in January and kept its Minnesota Avenue location.

“They asked us to help sublease their space, and we were able to put a deal together with this sushi group, and we’re excited for them to be in the space. It should be a great little spot for them,” said Rob Kurtenbach of Bender Commercial Real Estate Services, who leased the space.

“We had a fair amount of interest … and we’re happy to get the deal done.”
