Local restaurant group Bamboo Sushi is branching out to Lake Oswego with a new shop opening January 9, the Portland Tribune first reported. The sixth location from the sustainability-focused seafood chain will open in downtown LO in the Windward apartment development, appropriately next door to another beloved Portland chain, Salt and Straw. Its menu will look familiar to its fans, with sushi rolls, nigiri, sashimi, and other shared plates with strong Japanese influences. These will be joined by some fun new additions including pan-roasted trout as well as unique off-menu specials throughout the year to promote its local, seasonal approach.
Like all of the Bamboo locations, this new one will heavily emphasize sustainability, according to a press release. The approach isn’t limited to the sourcing of seafood, but also in the design of the building with sustainable materials and equipment incorporated throughout. The aesthetics will hew a bit warmer than other locations and draw from Japanese sensibilities, with lots of wood tones and natural greenery, plus art from Portland-based photographer Corey Arnold. Though it opens in winter, by summertime the restaurant will have a sprawling patio with over 30 seats for outdoor dining.
Bamboo Sushi Lake Oswego will be located at 380 1st Street, Lake Oswego, OR. The restaurant will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. nightly starting January 9, with happy hour Monday through Friday from 5 to 6. Eager beavers can catch a preview dinner on New Year’s Eve for $90, with reservations available here.
