A Downtown restaurant space that has been shuttered for over three years is set to spring to life in the coming weeks as a new Japanese-style eatery is finalizing its opening plans.

A new dining option called Itto Sushi has announced its imminent arrival at 239 Barrow Street. Located at the road’s intersection with Bright Street, the two-story building was once home to Sol Azteca before they commenced their move in 2018.

The property has been vacant for years since being sold for $1.25 million to a company named Barrow St. Property Mgmt LLC. But a significant renovation of the interior and exterior of the space that was designed by local architect Jorge Mastropietro Architects Atelier has been ongoing for some time, and that work looks like it will pay off soon.

Jersey City Upfront is reporting that Itto Sushi hopes to be serving diners by the end of the month. The business, owned by Sam Lee, has not yet released a formal menu but is hiring for a variety of positions including chefs. Those interested can email their resumes to [email protected].

Itto Sushi looks to include some outdoor seating as part of its business and will be closed on Mondays but open for both lunch and dinner during the remainder of the week. The restaurant can be followed on Instagram at the handle @ittosushijc for further updates, which should include an impending opening date announcement.
