Lufkin Brookshire Brothers opens sushi bar

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Brookshire Brothers at the Gaslight location in Lufkin is rolling out brand new and healthy options for lunch.

Thursday, the Chamber cut the ribbon to officially open the store's first sushi bar. They partnered with Simply Wonderful Sushi out of Houston to provide Lufkin with fresh sushi.

The company has been getting request from the community for years to come to Lufkin.  The bar is now open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  The manager, Jane Lee, of Korea, says she's excited to bring a little bit of Asian cuisine to East Texas.

"I really really feel good and appreciate what Brookshire Brother's has done for us," said Jane Lee, Sushi Bar Manager.

"The response has been overwhelming.  People really love fresh and healthy alternatives," said Sally Alvis, Brookshire Brothers' Communications Director.

The Sushi Bar has two chefs.  Lee says if you have special requests or you don't see the what you want on display, the chefs can custom make your dish.
