Bamboo Sushi is Coming to Seattle

Sustainable Restaurant Group will open the first Seattle location of its flagship concept, Bamboo Sushi, this November in University Village. 

With locations in Portland and Denver, Bamboo Sushi is known for serving sustainably sourced ingredients and innovative flavor combinations. They will be bringing some of their fan-favorite menu items to Seattle, including the famous Green Machine Roll (tempura fried long bean and green onion, topped with avocado & cilantro sweet chile aioli). In addition to the items that lovers of Bamboo Sushi will be familiar with, they will also be creating Seattle-specific nightly specials featuring locally-sourced seafood and hyper-seasonal produce honoring the flavors of Washington.

“Seattle is a natural progression for Sustainable Restaurant Group,” said Kristofor Lofgren, Founder and CEO of Sustainable Restaurant Group. “Being from Portland, we love the Pacific Northwest and have wanted to open a restaurant in Seattle for years…The bounty of the Pacific Northwest makes it an ideal place for any restaurant focused on sustainability, farm-to-table produce, and a wide variety of amazing seafood.”

At 4,700 square-feet, the UVillage location will be Bamboo Sushi’s largest location yet. Guests can expect to see their commitment to sustainability reflected in the design and decor of the space. Also unique to the Seattle location, the restaurant will feature a “Bamboo Sushi To-Go” window for takeout orders.

The bar program will focus on Pacific Northwest wineries that also specialize in biodynamic processes. As with all Bamboo Sushi locations, there will be a strong focus on Japanese-inspired share plates and its signature Yakumi selection, carefully selected toppings on traditional nigiri designed to showcase the flavor and quality of the fish. 

Bamboo Sushi Seattle will be located at 2675 NE University Village St. and will open in November 2019 for lunch and dinner daily, with a weekday happy hour.
