As the sushi turns: Sushi Lounge now operating out of the former Natori space on St. Mark's


[From November]

Higher rents chased Sushi Lounge from St. Mark's Place and Avenue A at the end of October.

Turns out the Sushi Lounge folks were also the new owners of Natori up the way on St. Mark's Place. (The original Natori, a longtime favorite, closed in November 2012.)

Got all that? No? Us either!

Anyway, what was operating as Natori is now… Sushi Lounge. A worker confirmed that they are the same Sushi Lounge that anchored the corner of St. Mark's and A…





As for the former Sushi Lounge space, chef Alex Stupak will be opening his third restaurant here.

I've never been so happy to be able to get bad sushi. Not kidding

I just hope they can go back to the size their sushi used to be. It got so ridicules that it wasn't cheap sushi cause it was so small, as it was only 'good' sushi when it was cheap sushi

This is good news. They've been doing the 1/2 priced sushi and beer for the past few weeks under the Natori name, so I'm happy that it's permanent now. Although, I bet business would be better if they kept that stylish Futura font that Natori used...

Sushi Lounge owner bought Nattori last year. He has two other Japanese places in the EV.

Anyone know if they are using the old sushi lounge menu or the natori menu?
