SUNSET PARK – A 20,000-square-foot Japanese-themed food hall is slated to debut in Industry City‘s Building 4 next spring.
Takuya Yoshida, who owns the Sunrise Mart Japanese grocery store chain in NYC, will serve as a Managing Partner for Japan Village, which will be designed to resemble two other popular NYC food halls—the Italian-focused Eataly and the French-focused Le District.
“Japan Village is going to offer visitors and tenants at Industry City an experience they can’t get,” Andrew Kimball, Chief Executive of Industry City, said to Crain’s New York. “That’s what excited us about this. It’s unique.”
Along with authentic Japanese food offerings such as sushi, bento boxes, ramen, rice balls, Japanese baked goods, and matcha drinks, Japan Village will also feature an izakaya restaurant, a sake shop, and a specialty grocery store, 6sqft reports.
Japan Village is scheduled to open Spring 2018.
