Yuzu Japanese Restaurant Nears Opening

Yuzu on Wisconsin Avenue is nearing its openingThe sushi and robata restaurant taking over the former Divino Lounge space in downtown Bethesda is nearing its grand opening, with a recent Craigslist ad for part-time servers.

In February, Bethesda Magazine reported Yoshihisa Ota, previously the owner of Kushi in Mt. Vernon Square, took over the storefront at 7345 Wisconsin Avenue to start Yuzu. He’s hoping for an April opening.

Workers have been busily prepping the inside of the restaurant in the past week. It will include a small sushi counter and grilled seafood and vegetable offerings on skewers called robata. Divino, the Argentine steakhouse, closed in December.
