Instead of takeout only, the local sushi spot is now a pop-up restaurant located on the east side of the apartments.

The colorful packaging and design of the take-out box carried over to the dining experience with walls covered in murals and cherry blossoms.

“Customers will feel like they’ve entered the world of Sora,” partner and designer Kumar Arora said in a press release. “We’ve gained such a loyal following for our brand over the past few months and this unique pop-up experience was really created for them to see the brand in a whole new light.”

The menu has expanded to include additional sushi rolls, original cocktails, Taiwanese fried chicken, Chinese sticky ribs and more.

“Since our launch a few months ago, we have taken tremendous pride in creating an authentic sushi experience with fresh ingredients that can be enjoyed at home,” partner and chef Kevin Wang said in a press release. “We look forward to expanding this concept into a full-service restaurant for our customers.”

Sora just officially opened its doors last week, and the reservation book is already filling up.

“We’ve had an outpouring of people supporting us, loving the product, loving what we do,” said Fabio Salerno, Sora partner and owner of Lago East Bank. “Lots of carry over from our box and it’s been really great. Friends, family and community kinda all came together last week and supported us day in and day out.

Sora is testing the waters, but the goal is for the pop-up to turn into a full-time Cleveland restaurant.
