The restaurant will seat 175 guests with space for another 60 at the main bar and Robata & Sushi Bar. A large central bar is the perfect gathering place for a pre-theater cocktail or late night drinks with friends. The Asian style décor will feature framed glass, wood trussing ceiling features, and hand carved twin laying Buddhas peering over the restaurant.
