Sushi Guru coming to Plaza Midwood?

Could a new Sushi Guru be coming to Plaza Midwood?

According to real estate records, engineering firm The Isaacs Group submitted a request recently to “remove the existing building and construct a new (2-story building) with associated parking” for a Sushi Guru restaurant at 1217 The Plaza, which is next to Whiskey Warehouse and across the street from Harris Teeter.

Records show it’s in the Duke’s Bread retail space.

As part of the project, the record read, one of the two existing driveways on the property will be removed and the other will be modified.

Brian Upton, the civil engineer for the project, said in an email to the Observer that all that’s been done at this point is to schedule a meeting with the city to determine site design and permitting requirements, but did not provide additional details.

Sushi Guru operates another restaurant in SouthPark at 6601 Morrison Blvd., behind Walgreens on Sharon Road and next to Rooster’s on Morrison.
