Sushi by Boū, the NYC-based omakase restaurant with a modern speakeasy-inspired design, is opening soon in Boca Raton.
The brand's first Palm Beach County location opened in May in West Palm Beach.
The restaurant is set to open on September 13 at 409 SE Mizner Boulevard in Royal Palm Place. The menu features Sushi by Boū's classic omakase experience, part of its bespoke speakeasy dining experience.
Each location has its own aesthetic and vibe offering a unique and memorable guest experience, with the Boca Raton location designed inspired by the 1920s Art Deco era. The intimate atmosphere will boast a bold variety of textures, dramatic architectural features, and adventurous ornamentation.
Sushi by Boū partners Erika London and chef David Bouhadana are both Boca Raton residents.
"I'm so excited to bring our passion for sushi to my new hometown and look forward to showcasing our unique omakase experience to Boca Raton diners," says London. "The Boca market is booming with a sophisticated dining audience, making the city a natural addition to our national expansion."
The newest openings in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach bring the total count for Sushi by Boū to 14 locations nationally and 19 in the SimpleVenue portfolio, including sister brands Sushi Suite, Omakaseed, Fins and Scales, and Trust Bae across New York, New Jersey, Chicago, and South Florida since its initial launch in 2017.
The restaurant's hospitality group founders Michael Sinensky and Erika London work alongside newly-appointed partner and chief hospitality officer Richie Romero, who together plan to add at least another dozen locations in 2023, including the Palm Beach County locations.
SimpleVenue is known for bringing micro-restaurant concepts to underutilized spaces located within existing venues. Its flagship brand Sushi by Boū changed the sushi counter experience in America by offering a modern take on the classic old-school Sushi Counter, providing a glimpse at the hustle and bustle of Japan's food culture, combined with a truly unique, personalized culinary experience.
Sushi by Boū’s seasoned sushi chefs will expertly guide guests through the timed Omakase experience. Guests can sit back and let the chef decide their menu and unique libations ($60 with a 12-course omakase) or ($125 with a 17-course omakase aka the Bou-gie upgrade featuring five additional seasonal courses), both for 60 minutes.
Try their signature "Wagyuni" — a take on surf and turf. Hand rolls and other sushi favorites utilize the freshest highest-quality fish sourced locally and globally are available upon request, along with additional a la carte specialties and seasonal mochi ice cream for dessert.
Sushi by Boū Boca Raton is located at 409 SE Mizner Boulevard. The hours of operation are Tuesday – Sunday 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. Reservations can be made at sushibybou.com or OpenTable.
