"Yuzu" could be open by April, Bethesda Magazine reports.
A new Japanese restaurant featuring sushi and robata will take over the former Divino space on Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda Magazine reports. Divino, an Argentine steakhouse, closed its doors last year. "There have been extensive negotiations with the landlord and due to the approach of the expiration of our lease, we did not have another choice," wrote managers in a note left on the door, Patch reported. The new restaurant, dubbed Yuzu, is headed up by Yoshihisa Ota, who previously was an owner of Mount Vernon Square's Kushi, according to the Bethesda Magazine report. The restaurant could be open as soon as April. Read the full story at Bethesda Magazine.
