Winter Garden is getting a new spot for those with a hankering for hibachi or a craving for a California rolls.
Yuki Sushi — located at 1201 Winter Garden Vineland Road — is set to open Friday, Nov. 1. The restaurant will serve up an array of sushi and other Japanese dishes, along with fresh ceviche and poke bowls.
“Yuki Sushi is born from a dream of working with people’s emotions through taste,” restaurant co-owner Semiramis Bonifacio said. “(We offer) a unique experience with quality service and great cuisine.”
Winter Garden resident Alex Satriano is another co-owner of Yuki Sushi. He said they decided to open in Winter Garden because he saw a need for a restaurant offering Japanese cuisine in the area.
“I had the idea (for Yuki Sushi) because it’s necessary to have a sushi restaurant here,” Satriano said. “I thought it was necessary because I love Japanese food, so (I thought) it was very important to have (it). … We have Chinese (restaurants), but we don’t have Japanese. And we don’t have sushi restaurants (doing) delivery.”
Satriano added that convenience was another aspect in mind when the co-owners decided to open Yuki Sushi. For those who might not feel like leaving the comfort of their homes, the restaurant will offer delivery seven days a week. Additionally, Yuki Sushi will offer happy hour and other specials for dine-in guests. Those with a large appetite for sushi can take advantage of the restaurant’s all-you-can-eat option, which will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
“We will have happy hour from Monday to Friday, on Tuesdays we will have (a) double Temaki (special) and during the week at lunch time we will have options for (lunch specials),” Bonifacio said. “We want to bring great cuisine to the locals. … People should come to know Yuki Sushi to have a new culinary experience.”
