China Market, Edo Sushi Bar relocate across town

June 30th, 2007 12:00 am by Staff report

KINGSPORT - China Market and Edo Sushi Bar & Grill have relocated from Colonial Heights to the other side of Kingsport.

The businesses have combined and expanded into the former Lee Greenwood Hungry Farmer restaurant at 500 Taff Pointe, off Union Street and West Stone Drive near Interstate 26.

A grand opening is set for Monday, July 2.

Benson and MeeMee Lai have operated the China Market Asian grocery store on Fort Henry Drive for more than a year. At that location, they offered free Asian cooking classes to help their customers become more familiar with Asian spices.

Now located in the expanded facility at Taff Pointe, the store will carry more than 400 grocery and gift items, from dry goods to Asian decorations.

Edo Sushi Bar & Grill has operated in Colonial Heights for more than two and a half years. The head sushi chef and manager, Casia Lai, delivers five-star foods and has more than 18 years of Chinese and Japanese restaurant experience.

Benson Lai serves as a partner in the restaurant.

"Over the years, they have discovered a unique niche while gaining customer loyalty one customer at a time," according to a release. "Their menu encompasses a full sushi bar along with traditional hibachi-style teriyaki."

At its new location, Edo Sushi Bar & Grill offers customers a more formal dining experience. One section of the restaurant is open to the public while the rest is available for private parties and events.

China Market and Edo Sushi Bar & Grill will be open from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
