Signage has recently appeared for a new Japanese restaurant slated to take up the former Tea Republic location in the Sunrise Plaza shopping center on Sunrise Boulevard.
Although the restaurant has not yet opened, a website for Sushi Star shows the location will offer a variety of sushi rolls on the menu, along with appetizers, soup and salad entrees, and desserts. Sushi rolls are listed at about $13 each.
A phone call to the number listed on the website went to voicemail, and a message was not returned by press time on Thursday. A look inside the front window indicates the interior has been renovated for use by the new tenant.
Business license records from the city show a permit was issued to Sushi Star on October 20, and a public notice for a pending alcohol license is currently posted in the front window.
The liquor license applicant is listed as Wawoo Japanese Foods, Inc, which is a company registered with the California Secretary of State in March of 2021, according to online records.
Tea Republic, the business previously occupying the location at 7777 Sunrise Blvd., suite 2000, closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, for unconfirmed reasons. Tea Republic still operates another location in Rocklin.
