A new made-to-order sushi restaurant, Sushi Mioga, is opening right across the street from Providence Park, at 1939 W Burnside St. It comes by way of Michael Jiang, who expects to have Sushi Mioga open by the end of the month. The space has been a historically tricky one to fill. Its last occupant, Oscar Drake's, the 170-seat upscale bar and grill that took the place of Agency Ultra Sports Lounge, lasted just five months before shuttering.
Speaking on Jiang's behalf, Mark Piscitelli of the commercial real estate firm Kidder Mathews tells Eater Jiang opened his first Sushi Mioga in the area, a conveyor-belt-sushi spot in Beaverton's Timberland Town Center, earlier this year, and he says Jiang intends to open a third Sushi Mioga at Johnson Creek and 82nd Avenue sometime this summer.
For the stadium Sushi Mioga, Piscitelli says to expect made-to-order sushi (not the conveyor belt kind), plus beer, wine, sake, and cocktails. Piscitelli says that Jiang has reconfigured the dining areas and opened up the 3,800-square-foot space, aiming for better spatial flow while working to keep the former Oscar Drake bar intact.
Could sushi be the thing to finally make that space click? It's way too early to say, but Sushi Mioga comes with one perk that most places lack—especially in the Alphabet District-Goose Hollow neighborhoods, and especially on Timbers and Thorns game days: two hours worth of underground validated parking.
