For the past eight years, Rayna Tucker has wanted to open her personal sushi and hibachi restaurant. When Country Kitchen closed this spring, and the construction turned into indexed for sale, Tucker jumped on it and started operating closer to conducting her dream.
Five months later, Tucker is ready to open Sapphire Sushi at 705 U.S. Highway 10 East.
“It just sorts of got here on the proper time,” Tucker stated.
She and her husband owned Ice Cracking Lodge in Ponsford for 12 years before promoting it in February. Tucker has been in the restaurant business since she became thirteen years antique, operating at her parent’s bakery in Alaska. Those Alaskan ties are a big reason why she desired her sushi and hibachi restaurant, but it turned into also “there is nothing without a doubt in this place,” Tucker stated.
When she first commenced working on starting Sapphire in April, the original call Tucker had anticipated became “Legends.” She decided she needed to find something new as soon as she realized that there already changed into a “Legends” eating place in Moorhead.
“I commenced gaining knowledge of names, and I called my daughter, who became on a bus going to a choir meet, and I began naming off names,” Tucker stated. While she said the names, the other bus riders would boo, and once she said “Sapphire,” they all yelled, “Yes!”
Now, the name ties in flawlessly as the building has a selection of blue colorings surrounding it.
After deciding on her enterprise call, Tucker and her family had many paintings reduced for them. She said that the construction became worse than they expected and had to intestine out the whole inside of it. This pushed their supposed commencing date returned approximately a month and a half.
But they may now be equipped to open Friday, Aug. 23.
Tucker put the menu on Facebook on Monday, giving her fans a preview of what will return. One of her cooks helped her determine what to provide, including sushi, hibachi, sashimi, nigiri, ramen bowls, a few American dishes, and extra. Tucker predicted that their menu might be adjusted depending on what her cooks can care for and what she sees as fitting. “Just provide us a couple of weeks to get all the kinks labored out and be patient,”
Tucker stated. From the comments on Facebook and the reservations made, Tucker anticipates them to be “slammed.” She is very thankful for the community in Detroit Lakes, extraordinary contractors and enterprise, and all of her family and friends for “supporting out to get this dream of mine right into a reality.” If you cross Sapphire Sushi, Hibachi, and American Cuisine may be reached at 218-844-0220.
