News from Scout supporter Miku
Vancouver, BC | Seigo Nakamura’s brand new Miku Restaurant has finally opened its doors in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbour today (liquor license pending and should be resolved by end of the week). Located at 70-200 Granville Street, the restaurant boasts a stunning waterfront view with a wrap-around patio, U-shaped bar, and beautiful hand-painted murals by Japanese artist Hideki Kimura. Alongside its popular Aburi “flame-seared” sushi is a menu that has more fresh seafood options, bar dishes, and cocktails and sakes.
“Many of our customers have called and emailed in the past months to ask when we were reopening again and the team at Aburi Restaurants Canada are so excited to unveil the new Miku to the public,” explains Nakamura, President and Owner of Aburi Restaurants Canada. “This Miku is much more spacious than the old location. We can’t wait for guests to try our new menu items while gazing out at the view or simply sipping on a sake cocktail at the bar.”
Designed by top B.C. firm SSDG Interiors, the new Miku is about 5,400 square-feet in size with 210 combined seats in its main dining room, U-shaped bar, patio, and sushi bar. The restaurant is surrounded by glass and windows – highlighting the breathtaking Vancouver waterfront view.
Aburi Restaurants Canada Corporate Chef Kazuya Matsuoka and Miku Restaurant Executive Chef Kazuhiro Hayashi have worked together to create an enhanced menu that highlights seafood dishes. This includes large and fresh seafood platters featuring lobsters, scallops, oysters, and sashimi. The sushi selection has been increased with more vegetarian and gluten-free options.
At the bar, there are new cocktail additions created by the Miku bar team. Aburi Restaurants’ own special sake, created exclusively by Japanese sake brewery Yoshinogawa, is available for sipping, in addition to about 25 varieties of sakes.
Ben Hunter, General Manager of Miku adds, ”The bar is truly something we hope our customers will enjoy, as our West Hastings location didn’t really have a lounge component to it.”
Miku Restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Sunday. For more information, please visit www.mikurestaurant.com.
