I just realized my headline there could be read a different way, which amuses me. Anyway.
The Bulletin reports that a new restaurant is finally taking over the space of the former Deep, Jody Denton’s expensive sushi bar that closed suddenly in January when Denton left town in a hurry.
A new restaurant, 5 Spice Fusion and Sushi, will open in December in the vacant space that once housed Deep, a similarly themed Japanese fusion restaurant that closed in January.
The restaurant, in the O.C. Henkle Building at 821 N.W. Wall St., will be a sushi bar that also serves Asian-European fusion dishes, said co-owner and Chef Bi Long. The restaurant will use organic, local, healthy food, said co-owner Lilian Chu, the former owner of the Hong Kong Restaurant on Southeast Third Street.
They plan to open December 3.
