Harlem Michelin-starred restaurant Sushi Inoue will soon have a massive new location on the Upper West Side.

The Post reports that chef Shinichi Inoue — whose eponymous omakase was the first restaurant in Harlem to get a Michelin star— is planning to open a second restaurant at 35 West 64th St., between Broadway and Central Park West. The new outpost, right by Lincoln Center, will seat 150 people in a dining room and will also have a lower level. It’s currently under construction.

Inoue, an alum of Sushi Azabu, opened his first restaurant at 381 Lenox Avenue in 2015. Now, the restaurant offers three levels of high end omakase, priced at $175, $225, and $275. The chef uses multiple forms of seasoned rice to accompany different fish — a practice that’s common in Japan but less so here in New York. The resulting meals earned the restaurant its first Michelin star in 2016.

Eater has reached out to Inoue’s restaurant for further information.
