Another sushi restaurant may soon be coming to Arlington Heights.

Plans for 5th Avenue Sushi, 138 E. Rand Road, received unanimous approval from Arlington Heights' plan commission last week, said Bill Enright, the village's deputy director for planning and community development.

The restaurant's owners will appear before the village board for possible final approval on April 7, Enright said.

According to a staff report, 5th Avenue Sushi would be a 2,100-square-foot restaurant with a total seating area of 902 square feet and room for 66 diners.

The new restaurant would be located in an end space at Arlington Plaza, a shopping center at Rand and Arlington Heights roads.

Also on Rand Road in Arlington Heights are Sun Shui Restaurant, Naomi Sushi and Yummy Gourmet, three other restaurants that serve sushi. "We don't regulate competition," Enright said.

The location previously was a Verizon store, but it has been empty for about a year.

"We are very much looking forward to having them in town," Enright said.

Owners of the restaurant also will seek a liquor license and need to appear before the village board's committee of the whole for approval before beginning alcohol sales.
