Hinata Sushi Bar and Grill Aims for March Opening in North Old Town

A new Japanese sushi bar and grill is coming to 909 N. Saint Asaph Street in North Old Town, but it’s still several months away.

The restaurant will be the first location for Chef Hyun Su Kim, as first reported by Alexandria Living Magazine, though Kim has worked in sushi restaurants throughout the region for 14 years.

Kim told ALXnow he’s hoping to open the restaurant in late March, but there’s still more work that needs to be done on the building in the meantime. The menu will focus largely on seafood and will emphasize the sourcing of ingredients, he said.

“We’re definitely looking at fish dishes, with a lot of focus on telling people where the fish is from,” Kim told ALXnow. “We want to let people know where each meal comes from.”

Kim said he’s still working on the menu, which will try to walk the line between affordable and fancy. Kim said prices could range from $25-50 per person, which seems to fit with the luxury apartments built above it, called The Gables.

Hinata is one of several new businesses coming to the block, including the Smart Press cleaning service, pet store Loyal Companion, and a barbershop called Cut and Shave.
