Here's a curious import: The Daily News reports that French chain Sushi Shop will open its first NYC location this February. The restaurant serves all types of sushi in a fast-casual setting with an emphasis on delivery. According to the site for Richard & Sons, a commercial development company, the store will open up in the old Burger Heaven space at 536 Madison Avenue in Midtown.
For their grand opening, Sushi Shop will serve food in to-go boxes designed by Lenny Kravitz, because that's how they roll. Hopefully they'll have more luck than fast food sushi place My Maki did earlier this year.
