Sushi Tsu Relocating

The Japanese restaurant will be moving, but when and where hasn’t yet been determined.

Sushi Tsu, a restaurant serving Japanese cuisine at 15363 Amberly Drive, will be relocating.

But when and where the restaurant will be moving hasn’t been determined yet.

A.J. Jewell, the restaurant’s manager, said no specific date on the closing of the current location has been decided, but it could be sometime around March 10. He also said a relocation site hasn’t been established. He declined to comment further.

Jewell and his wife bought Sushi Tsu in the Shoppes of Amberly more than three years ago from Jewell’s former boss and Sushi Tsu founder, Jay Choe, according to the Neighborhood News.

The menu features teppanyaki items, Japanese dishes, makimono, hibachi, combination platters, seafood platters and curry dishes. The sushi bar creates fresh rolls and sashimi and kids can choose from the children’s menu. The restaurant also hosts special events and offers promotions and daily specials.

Jewell was born in Japan, according to information listed in a Groupon deal for the restaurant that was available last August. His father was American and his mother was Japanese and a chef. When he moved to Tampa in the 1980s, Jewell followed in his mother’s cooking footsteps. He trained as a teppanyaki chef, apprenticed under master chefs and worked at Sushi Tsu for years before buying it.

We have loved having you over the years in New Tampa. Mr Roger is a real gem to our children when they celebrate their birthdays. If times are tough and closure is eminent then I am very very sorry to see you go. You have told some of your customers as of late your last open day is March 9th. If you are closing then please tell us. If you are relocating then tell us. New Tampa has had a rough time with restaurant issues, Selmons, Lodge etc. Enough of the Mickey Mouse stuff. Just come clean with what is going on please. There is talk about money issues, land lord problems, local competition etc. Just report honestly or keep comments and reporting on hold until the truth can be told please. If you have to go, go out with an honest bang unlike other New Tampa scenarios who have reported otherwise.
