Another Japanese steak-and-sushi restaurant is opening in the Capital Region.
The genre, making inroads into the ethnic stranglehold Amer-Italian restaurants have had around here for generations, will be swelled this evening when the doors open at Samurai, 158 Wolf Road.
That's in the former Burger King site that passersby have been watching undergo renovations to handle eight teppanyaki tables along with other seating.
As I noted in a posting about this project back in June, owner Jerry Zheng also operates Sakura in Clifton Park and China King in Niskayuna.
Samurai will be open from 5 this evening. Its regular hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday. Phone: 813-9555.
