The owners, who have similar restaurants in Boston, Framingham and Swampscott, plan an "upscale Asian cuisine." That translates to a sushi bar, hibachi tables and a sit-down dining room. The menu will blend Japanese and Chinese dishes.
If the license receives approval from the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, the owners will request from the town a common victualler license and building permits.
A spring opening is anticipated.
