Wokuni in Murray Hill
Wokuni, a sleek Japanese restaurant chain from Japan, has chosen Murray Hill in Manhattan to house its first location in the USA. It is part of Tokyo Ichiban Foods, a company that has 50 restaurants in Japan. After it’s opening in October of 2017, it has received a good reputation for serving the freshest seafood from Japan for a moderate price. Restaurant critic, Pete Wells from the New York Times states, “…it’s Japanese seafood without the painful price tag”.
In a conversation with their head chef, Mr.Yoshizawa expressed that his customers are very pleased with their sushi and sashimi. In addition to it’s own in-house imports of bluefin tuna and king yellowtail, Wokuni’s other seafood needs are supplied by OP. The establishment also provides a special retail convenience to its customers, where they can purchase their own fresh delicacies to prepare at home.
