With its mix of coffee, French toast, and sushi, Cafe île (8270 Greensboro Drive) wants to be a little bit of everything rolled into one.
The eclectic menu ranges from tartine and croissants in the morning to a more Omakase-focus at night — a style of serving sushi that leaves the specifics of what’s served up to the chef.
“Normally, it’s a sushi restaurant, but we want [more of a] fusion and hybrid,” said Jin Kim, partner and media director for the restaurant.
Kim said along with open-faced sandwiches and other breakfast cuisines, the cafe will serve specialty coffee. At lunch, the vibe of the restaurant is more casual, with a focus on “regular sushi” aimed at office workers or nearby residents, but things take another turn when dinner comes along with a several-course meal.
“The first step is a simple soup, then finger food, then sushi, then five or six different levels” said Kim. “It’s a little bit high-end. It’s high-quality sushi.”
The new restaurant is set to replace the Subway at 8270 Greensboro Drive next month. Kim said the restaurant will likely have a soft opening in the middle of November with a full opening toward the end of the month.
