Japanese steakhouse opening in Carlsbad next week

Carlsbad soon has a Japanese steakhouse.

Tokyo Restaurant opens at some point next week in the Northgate Shopping Center.

Manager Annie Wang tells the Current-Argus that the opening date depends on staffing, among other things.

She says the restaurant intends to have cooks from different parts of the country because of the specialized skills required for hibachi cooking.

Wang also plans on hiring a host and a handful of servers.

The menu includes a special Carlsbad roll that contains teriyaki steak, cream cheese, and avocado.
