Orlando’s First Standing Sushi Bar Opening September 2022, Soft Open begins July 28th
If you have been to Tokyo, then you may well know about the particular type of sushi bar where people – usually busy businessmen and women about their day – dine on sushi while standing around a square shaped bar. It’s usually affordable and of course delicious, yet casual.
Edoboy is 8 person standing sushi bar opening soon right here in Orlando where guests order 12 pieces max of nigiri, torched nigiri, and hand rolls a la carte directly with the chefs, who serve the sushi piece by piece.
Sean “Sonny” Nguyen, owner of Orlando favorites Domu (Michelin Bib Gourmand 2022) and Tori Tori (Michelin-Recommended 2022), and Chef Tyler have been creating the Edoboy menu for over a year, while developing ways to modernize the tradition of Japanese standing sushi bars that cater to Orlando’s burgeoning Mills50 food scene.
This unique dining experience is meant to last one hour or less and provides quick, high-quality sushi at an affordable price. “By removing the server as a middle man, we can expedite things and give the customer immediate satisfaction. Not having seats keeps things fast and flowing,” says Nguyen.
Assorted Japanese beer and sake are also available, as well as miso soup made from the fish bones of the day.
Guests are required to book one hour time slots, meaning no walk-ins and a strict cancellation policy.
Time slots will drop every Monday via Resy (free dining app) for the same week. The first week of time slots go live Monday, July 25 for their public soft opening starting Thursday, July 28.
Above all, EDOBOY is a personal passion project for Nguyen, inspired by his travels to Japan.
“When traveling in Tokyo, standing bars were my wife and I’s favorite way of enjoying sushi, and I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we did,” says Nguyen.
With the soft opening shortly underway, EDOBOY is anticipating an official open date in early September 2022.
