One Two Three Sushi Offers Students Freedom of Choice

Restaurant’s New Dinkytown Location Opens August 26

MINNEAPOLIS (August 20, 2013) – One Two Three Sushi™, the Twin Cities-based restaurant that brings the concept of custom sushi to the fast-casual dining scene, will open its second location in Dinkytown (318 14th Ave SE) across from Annie‘s Parlour on Mon., Aug. 26 – just in time for back to school.

One Two Three Sushi offers fresh high-quality ingredients, sushi, and Japanese meals in a quick, casual and convenient environment where diners can opt to dine in or carry out. Guests have the freedom to choose their ingredients and customize their meals according to their own tastes, cravings, and dietary preferences. There are more than 40 different sushi ingredients to choose from; guests select their rice, their main ingredient, their fillings, and their topping and sauces. For those that are not in the mood for sushi, there are other options – including ramen noodles, rice bowls, and steamed buns.

New Dinkytown Location to Offer Expanded Hours and Menu
Catering to the needs of a diverse university crowd, this location will have extended hours and an expanded menu. The Dinkytown menu will offer the same items as the skyway locations, plus it will add a line of nigiri, and new hot items, including a short rib ramen and rice bowls. The menu also will feature an expanded sushi ingredient menu with seven new options: tamago (egg omelet), poached shrimp, chicken teriyaki, beef tataki (thinly sliced, lightly seared, seasoned beef), shitake mushrooms, kimchi and takuan (pickled daikon). The Dinkytown restaurant, unlike the IDS Tower site, also will serve beer and sake. Sake bombs anyone? “One Two Three Sushi is really excited to bring something fresh and new to the University community,” said Jeremy Beck, Dinkytown general manager and chef. “We think they’ll love the freedom and fun of creating their own sushi and already envision guests coming up with some pretty original sushi variations.” The budget friendly menu has classic sushi rolls and nigiri priced at $7.99, ramen noodles at $8.99, rice bowls at $6.99, and steamed buns for $5.99. Sides of miso soup, edamame and salads range from $1.99 to $3.99. Beer and sake options are priced between $1.99 for a sake bomb to $3.79 for a premium beer.

One Two Three Sushi™ is a quick service restaurant headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota. It offers fresh, high-quality ingredients, sushi and Japanese meals in a quick, casual and convenient environment. Diners have the freedom to choose their ingredients and customize their meals to their own preferences. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sushi Avenue. One Two Three Sushi opened its first location in February 2013 at the IDS Center. A third location is set to open in September in the skyway of the Retek Building (50 S 10th Street). Sushi Avenue is a rapidly growing private company providing prepared meal solutions to upscale supermarkets, restaurants and institutional food service organizations. It currently serves more than 300 locations across 16 states. Sushi Avenue founders, Nay Hla and Nay Lin, broke into the restaurant scene in 2011 with their award-winning Masu Sushi & Robata. This hip, upscale Japanese restaurant’s success quickly led to a second location being opened in 2012 in the Mall of America. Next, seeking to fill a void in the fast-casual, quick service restaurant (QSR) category for high-quality, fresh sushi, they created and introduced One Two Three Sushi in February of 2013.
