The upscale, omakase-style restaurant Nabe Sushi held it soft opening in May at its location near River Place and Steiner Ranch.

The details

The local business owned by Tim Kwon offers a variety of bentos and sushi options such as sashimi and nigiri rolls. The upscale, omakase-style restaurant specializes in Bluefin Tuna and receives fresh fish more than three times a week, Kwon said.

Additional menu items include ramen, appetizers, salads, bowls, tempura and entrees such as chicken teriyaki and wagyu steak. Desserts such as cheesecake and fresh fruit tarts are also available, as well as alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.

What else?

Kwon spent 20 years working as a software engineer, business marketing expert and entrepreneur. He combined his knowledge of the best sushi gained from international travel with the expertise of sushi chefs with over 20 years of experience to open the restaurant, he said.

The restaurant plans to hold its grand opening in August following the decoration of its patio area, Kwon said.
