Build-out has already begun on a 3,000-square-foot restaurant space on Detroit Avenue, adjacent to Dan Deagan’s Humble Wine Bar. When it opens in early June, Voodoo Tuna Sushi Bar & Lounge will bring Asian Fusion to Lakewood.
“The interior will be very modern, somewhat Asian-inspired, with bold colors,” says partner Mike Longo, who has no relation to the operator of Harvest Kitchen in Solon.
The contemporary dining room will accommodate approximately 100 guests at tables, a sushi bar and a large wet bar. A front patio will provide seating for more diners.
Partner Joe Koskovics, who has spent the last six years preparing sushi at restaurants like Ballantine and Lure Bistro in Willoughby, will be running the food side of the operation. He’ll be joined by executive chef Andrew Jackson and GM Dave Socha, also both from Ballantine.
“We’re going to take classic Asian dishes and put an Americanized spin on them,” Koskovics explains. “We’ll take sushi dishes and blend them with elements from the kitchen.”
