Mikasa Sushi To Replace Beer Saloon

Remember that contest we told you about, in which a soon-to-open sushi joint at an unspecified address on Gravesend Neck Road wanted your to help name their restaurant? Well, that restaurant has found a name – and it wasn’t any of your suggestions.

After receiving 33 submissions, the owners decided they all stunk, and so went with Sushi Mikasa, named after the Japanese battleship and, like, 500,000 other sushi joints.

Anyway, according to their liquor license application, Mikasa is opening at 1188 Gravesend Neck Road, the former site of Beer Saloon, which closed sometime in October or early November. We stopped by yesterday and the interior is being completely redone, with workers saying it’ll be at least a month until they’re finished.

Please insert obligatory humorous reference to the multitude of sushi restaurants here.
