Omakase sushi bar coming to former upholstery shop on 7th Street

An omakase sushi bar is in the works for 208 E. Seventh St. between Avenue B and Avenue C. 

The applicant, Linda Wang, had received administrative approval for a beer-wine license from Community Board 3 this month. 

According to the questionnaire on file at the CB3 website (PDF here), the still-unnamed establishment (reservations only) will be in service from noon to 10 p.m., with seats for 12-16 patrons. 

Wang is a partner in Shinn East, which opened in May 2020 at 119 E. Seventh St. She is also an owner of Ume in Williamsburg. 

The space was, since 2013, C.Y. Upholstery. The shop run by Charles Young quietly closed late last year.

Tyler Hathaway, your lovely personal film of Charles Young brought me to tears. He was a wonderful man. Thank you
