A new Asian restaurant is opening in the space at 327 N. Hillside formerly occupied by Yamasa Japanese Grill, which closed late last year.
Lin Daniel and his wife, Chen Hong, are opening Fuji Japanese Grill & Sushi around Aug. 28.
“We changed everything,” Daniel says. He says, “Everything’s better than before.”
The restaurant will have sushi and grill items.
Daniel says he and Hong would like to have the restaurant become a chain “all over the U.S.A.”
“That’s our goal,” he says. “Our dream.”
