Downtown Avalon Park to Welcome Bayridge Sushi

 ORLANDO, FL --- Avalon Park Group’s Vice President Rich Browning (middle right photo) recently negotiated a long-term lease agreement with Bayridge Sushi (top left photo)  for 5,427 square feet of retail space at 3680 Avalon Park Blvd. East in downtown Avalon Park (lower  left photo). 

Stephanie Hodson, marketing director at Avalon Park Group, said this will be owner Ben Lu’s third Bayridge Sushi location in Central Florida.

“Ben Lu moved to New York City when he was a teenager to work in his Master Sushi Chef’s restaurant,” Hodson explained. “He started the first Bayridge Sushi restaurant in Bayridge, NY which was rated 4 stars (****) by the New York Daily News. 

Ten years ago he opened his first Central Florida restaurant in Longwood to great reviews including the Orlando Sentinel which commented “If raw fish is your dish, this is your place” and Orlando Weekly which stated “Bayridge Sushi…swimmingly good.”

He later opened a second Central Florida location on SR 436 near Apopka, which was voted by a local newspaper “Best Sushi 2010,” she said.

Buildout will commence during the first quarter and the restaurant will offer a full bar, hibachi tables and outdoor seating.   Hodson said the restaurant is expected to open by the end of September or October 2011. 

Bayridge Sushi was represented by Frank Thomas of Fact Business & Realty, Inc.
