AKA Bistro has closed. We spoke with the owner on the last week of operation in early May 2016. He is considering opening a new restaurant in the area but has nothing definite to announce at this time. Our last meal there was excellent.

Can't Decide... French or Japanese? Aka Has a Dish for you! Sushi was fresh and beautifully presented, as were the farm-to-table ingredients of the Continental Fare. Service was attentive and professional.
