At the recently re-opened BaiKu Sushi Lounge, newly appointed executive chef Eliott Harris is rolling out his take on the concept with a focus on freshness. As reported by Feast last month, the Midtown sushi restaurant originally opened in Hotel Ignacio in October 2014 and closed in January due to construction on the building. It reopened on April 26 under new leadership with an updated menu.

Harris previously served as the executive chef of BaiKu owner Brad Beracha’s now-shuttered restaurant, Miso. His 20 years of experience behind a sushi bar also includes owning sushi-centric food truck, Chop Shop STL, and serving as the sushi consultant for Central Table Food Hall.

Former food truck sushi chef Elliot Harris has found a new, more stationary home. Harris, who sold Chop Shop STL in December 2015, is now executive sushi chef at Baiku Sushi Lounge in Midtown.

Baiku owner Brad Beracha said Harris actually joined the restaurant in January, but the announcement was postponed while Baiku temporarily closed its doors that month so Hotel Ignacio (located in the same building) addressed structural problems in the building. Beracha said Harris used that time to tweak the sushi menu. Repairs are made and Baiku will reopen for dinner next Tuesday, April 26 and lunch on May 3. The restaurant will be closed on Sundays.
