Hillsboro Village sushi outpost Zumi Sushi is getting a major revamp, as Seed Hospitality announced today that the restaurant will shutter next month and reopen as Lucky Belly. A burgers and sushi concept, Seed Hospitality CEO Patrick Burke is calling the new project a 'Japanacana' mash-up 'inspired by the urban youth culture of modern Tokyo and its fascination with all things Americana.'
Burke, who along with Seed partner and culinary director Jason McConnell also owns East Nashville izakaya Two Ten Jack (which was originally planned to be called Lucky Belly), tells Eater that the new restaurant will feature a more concise menu of eight to twelve different burgers and approximately the same number of sushi rolls, along with small plates and spiked milkshakes made with Jeni's Ice Creams. The interior will also change to reflect the more modern approach.
Burke plans for Zumi's last dinner service to be on Nov.23, with the restaurant closing over the Thanksgiving holiday in preparation for a Dec.5 opening.
