The owners of Sushi Cafe are opening a West Little Rock location, on the second floor of Eleven Two Eleven Cantrell Center at Cantrell and Woodland Heights roads, just east of the Pleasant Ridge Town Center. Manager and partner Robert Tju said the western Sushi Cafe will be a bit smaller than the Sushi Cafe at 5823 Kavanaugh Blvd., seating about 100 people, but the menu will be the same. The new care should open mid-December, he said.

Tju also said that Oishi Hibachi and Thai at 5501 Kavanaugh Blvd., which opened Aug. 25, is now using its full menu. The family restaurant features smokeless grills for teppanyaki-style cooking.
