Ken Sze, who grew up in the family biz at Yokohama restaurant in Maple Shade, and his wife, Cortney Cohen-Sze, are in the soft-opening phase of Tuna Bar, a polished Japanese bistro in the new Bridge, at Second and Race Streets in Old City. (It's also around the corner from her boutique, Geisha House.)
Its well-stocked drinking bar segues into a sushi bar, and an oyster/raw counter is awaiting final installation.
Seating includes booths and intimate "deuces" facing the sushi bar.
Menu is expanding beyond sushi/sashimi, steak, crudo, and a few cooked dishes, namely Sze's seafood specialties, to include robatayaki cooking and an omakase.
Boxwood Design opted for clean lines, reminiscent of Walnut Street Cafe at 29th and Walnut Streets.
