Blue Sushi art

Fifth + Broadway will be the first Tennessee location for Blue Sushi Sake Grill.

Known for its cosmopolitan vibe and Asian aesthetic, Blue Sushi Sake Grill offers a menu highlighted by Japanese standards such as nigiri, sashimi and maki. In addition to wines, cocktails and beers, the drink menu highlights multiple types of sake.

Omaha-based Flagship Restaurant Group is the parent company of the concept, which also has a presence in Lincoln, Nebraska; Dallas (two locations); Fort Worth; Austin; Denver; Westwood, Kansas; Naperville, Illinois; Lexington, Kentucky; Indianapolis; Westlake, Ohio; and Des Moines, Iowa. In addition, Chicago is slated for a Blue Sushi Sake Grill. Omaha is home to three of the restaurants.

The chain emphasizes on its social media pages its use of humane fish harvesting and environmentally friendly methods.

A permit valued at $1.2 million has been issued to allow for the build-out of the future Blue Sushi Sake Grill space. Alpa Construction Inc. is handling the job. Fifth + Broadway is located at the downtown intersection from which its name derives.

Of note, Blue Sushi Sake Grill will take a standalone space that is not part of Assembly Food Hall.

Flagship Restaurant Group officials could not be reached for comment.  

My position with Nashville Post has evolved since 2000 when I began work with the now-defunct The City Paper. TCP became a Post sister pub in 2008 (when I began some Post work) and folded in 2013. I have worked mainly with the Post since late 2011.
