A new Asian restaurant is opening in the northern suburbs of Boston, and it is moving into the space above a steak and seafood spot.
According to a message from The Passionate Foodie, Tsukiji Bistro is in the middle of a soft opening in Melrose, with the restaurant being on the second floor of the Main Street building that houses Stearns & Hill's Bistro. The new eatery offers a mix of dishes with influences from Japan, Korea, Thailand, China, and Hawaii, and it includes such options as sushi, raw bar items, gyoza, shumai, fried chicken, salt and pepper shrimp, lo mein, hot pot, and rice bowls, along with beer, wine, sake, and Asian-inspired cocktails.
It appears that there is a connection between Tsukiji Bistro and Stearns & Hill's Bistro, as the new spot shows a logo for Stearns & Hill's Bistro on its website along with another restaurant--Fusilli's Cucina in Reading. (In addition, the space that Tsukiji Bistro resides in used to be a bar for Stearns & Hill's Bistro.)
The address for this new Asian restaurant in Melrose is: Tsukiji Bistro, 505 Main St, Melrose, MA, 02176. Its website can be found at http://tsukijibistro.com/
