The owners of Shi, the well-known Japanese/Asian restaurant located on Center Boulevard, have plenty of new business ventures on tap.
Shih and Skinny Lee plan to open a new dessert shop at 13-11 Jackson Avenue next month—and are also likely to open a Japanese restaurant at 27-26 Jackson Avenue.
The dessert shop, which will be called Pink Canary Bakery, will sell items such as specialty cakes and cupcakes. The Lee brothers will be partnering up with Joseph Polito, who has been doing the baking at Shi for some time.
The bakery, which will be in a 730 sqf space, is expected to be very kid friendly.
Meanwhile, the new Japanese restaurant would be located at 27-26 Jackson Avenue if the Lees’ plans pan out. They would aim to open it by the end of the year.
The Lee brothers currently own Shi as well as Skinny’s Cantina, a popular Mexican restaurant and bar, located at 47-05 Center Blvd.
