Another Japanese Restaurant Coming To Vernon Boulevard

El Ay Si

Nov. 18, 2015 By Christian Murray

A Japanese restaurant will open on Vernon Boulevard at the location that was previously occupied by El Ay Si.

Sushi Daizen, which will focus on traditional sushi, is expected to open at 47-38 Vernon Blvd. in February, according to the owners.

The venue will be small, with the restaurant offering about 20 seats. The owners, who said that they will be open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, got the green light from Community Board 2 last night for a wine and beer license.

The announcement comes just weeks after another restaurateur said he would be opening a Japanese restaurant at 5-50 50th Ave. called Takumen.

Sushi Daizen and Takumen will join several other Japanese eateries that have come to the neighborhood in the past 24 months.

Hibino LIC, located at 10-70 Jackson Ave., opened in March 2014; Mu Ramen opened its brick and mortar operation 12 months ago at 12-09 Jackson Ave.; Tamashii Ramen, located at 47-36 Vernon Blvd. opened in May; and Murasaki opened at 46-44 Vernon Blvd. in July.
