Raleigh, N.C. — Fans and staff of Sushi Nine celebrated plans to rebuild and reopen at the restaurant's original site on Sunday with a groundbreaking ceremony.
A horrific fire destroyed the Sushi Nine building in January 2016. Restaurant owners announced their plans to rebuild the popular restaurants even as firefighters battled the blaze, and they received demolition permits on Feb. 29.
At Sunday's 11 a.m. groundbreaking, models and floor plans were revealed for the new restaurant. The ceremony was held at Sushi Nine's original location at 3812 Western Boulevard, where the restaurant will remain.
"We plan to open by this fall with a bigger floor plan and an all new interior," said the co-owner. "However, we plan on maintaining the same menu that has kept our customers loyal."
