New dining options are on the horizon in Scarsdale with one new opening, and two more to come. Yamanoya Sushi just opened their doors at 56 Garth Road in the space formerly occupied by Asian fusion restaurant Tengda. Owner Yvonne Chen explained that this is her second restaurant – her first was in Hauppague Long Island. The interior remains the same as the former tenant and is spacious with a large sushi bar. The menu includes sushi dinners and special rolls as well as hot entrees and noodles and fried rice. The Yamanoya signature roll includes spicy tuna, avocado and crunch wrapped in seaweed and topped with snow crab. From now until March 31, they are offering 20% off on their lunch special, $10 off on orders of $80 or more and $5 off a purchase of $40 or more. Stop by and let us know what you think!
Currently under construction on Spencer Place is Namu Steakhouse, which will feature Korean barbeque. Slated to open around Christmas-time, the 60-seat restaurant will include a "treehouse" motif, as Namu means treehouse in Korean. The décor will include a large tree that will extend up to a skylight to bring the outside in. The menu will include kalbi, or Korean marinated short ribs, and bibim-bap, Korean rice bowls. The restaurant will be managed by Daniel Choe, who graduated from Pace with a degree in hospitality and managed Edo Japanese Steakhouse in Port Chester for three years. His father owns a Korean-Japanese restaurant in Armonk and his mother owns Iris Nails on Chase Road around the corner.
Also opening on Garth Road is a new Greek restaurant called Petra that is currently under construction.
Now closed however is Villa Roma Pizzeria on Depot Place.
