MOUNT VERNON — Tuesday marked the opening of the much anticipated Ichiban Sushi and Hibachi restaurant, located in the former Kirkland’s Hallmark store at 1558 Coshocton Ave.

Modeled after their restaurant in Wooster, Osaka Asian Restaurant, co-owners Frankie Zou and Joe Jaing have created Ichiban Sushi and Hibachi to be an Asian-fusion restaurant, presenting Mount Vernon an abundance with Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisine, such as dozens of different types of sushi, General Tso’s Chicken, calamari, lo mein, Thai curry and much more.

In harmony with the Asian-fusion menu, the decor of the restaurant also incorporates different cultural aspects of several Asian regions. Dark, mahogany wood, pretty geisha dolls, Chinese lanterns, Japanese murals and a terracotta-soldier statue adorn the restaurant and create a fun, unique atmosphere.
