SACRAMENTO, CA – With seven locations in the Sacramento region, and one in Truckee, Mikuni plans to bring its renowned Japanese cuisine and fresh sushi to Folsom at east Bidwell Street just off Highway 50.
“We have waited for the right location looking at properties in El Dorado Hills and Folsom over the past couple of years,” said CEO Haru Sakata. “With residential property expansion south of Highway 50 and continued double digit growth in Folsom, we are encouraged to add another Mikuni location in the region.”
Mikuni will occupy a 5,000 sq. ft. space in the Folsom Point restaurant/retail triangle at East Bidwell, Highway 50, and Old Placerville Road. Mikuni guests are familiar with the menu that includes daily innovations, and fan favorites like the famous Bar-B-Que Tuna with red and white sauce, Incredible Roll and creations named after local icons including David Garibaldi, DeMarcus Cousins, the Sac Republic FC, and Urijah Faber. The opening of Mikuni in Folsom will be the ninth sushi location for the restaurant group. In addition to serving lunch and dinner, Mikuni will offer sushi to-go, patio dining and a full bar open nightly until 10:00pm.
Mikuni, long known for its loud, energetic atmosphere will not disappoint with the Folsom addition. Plans are in place to create an environment where people can enjoy themselves and entertain friends and family and have fun with the cuisine amid the sushi chef interaction. “We are successful because of the talent and hard work of all our employees,” stated Kevin Kim, COO. “We look forward to serving new and loyal guests and being a larger part of the energy in the Folsom community.”
