The large vacant storefront on Wheeler Avenue won't be that for much longer.
Miyabi Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar will be open in a few weeks, Owner Andy Lin confirmed.
Lin, who also owns and operates Impulse Hibachi Bar & Lounge and —both on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains—said the interior of the former restaurant and bakery has been completely revamped for the opening.
"We've been in there for a long time," he said.
The Bedford resident said the restaurant will mostly focus on Japanese cuisine, with an emphasis on sushi.
Miyabi has also secured a liquor license and will be serving specialty drinks during its daily lunch and dinner hours.
On Thursday evening, Pleasantville's Architectural Review Board approved Lin's proposed signage, which will feature an orange backer panel with letters outlined in black set on red LED illuminations.
"It seems like a pretty well-considered sign," said Chairman Bjorn Slate.
Lin said he has designed the restaurant to be "very affordable" and is looking forward to finally opening soon.
