Tori Tori and Domu proprietor Sean “Sonny” Nguyen will be opening a new standing sushi bar concept in Mills 50 sometime this winter.

The new Japanese-inspired experience will feature an eight-person bar offering a selection of fresh nigiri sushi and hand roll options in a 700 SF space located directly behind Tori Tori at 728 N. Thornton Avenue [GMap] in the parking lot behind the former Snap Gallery/Cameo Theater building.

EDOBOY (Instagram), a play on Edo-era Japan, will be a casual eat-and-go-style eatery where guests will walk in, be led to an available spot at the bar, and be greeted with an oshibori, or wet towelette. Guests will be able to order a few pieces at a time before they order their next round. There will be no servers and the chef will give them their bill to ring to a cashier before exiting.

Fresh fish will be flown in weekly from Japan and served alongside locally sourced, seasonal offerings as well, which will be hand-selected each day for that menu. The menu is being led by Chef Tyler Inthavongsa, who has four years of experience working with the Domu Dynasty team before being promoted to lead Sushi Chef for this new concept.

EDOBOY will serve as an extension of Tori Tori when it opens in fall/early winter 2021.
