A new sushi and ramen restaurant is coming to Shirlington.
Signs for “Ichiban Sushi and Ramen” appeared in the windows of the former Blue Sea Seafood and Bar space at 4251 Campbell Avenue within the past couple of days. Blue Sea closed last week, after less than two years in business.
A logo on the sign appears to be the same as that of Ichiban Sushi House in Old Town Alexandria.
So far, there’s no word on an opening date for the new restaurant.
There are other changes afoot at the Village at Shirlington, meanwhile. Interior construction is underway at the new art-themed restaurant Palette 22, which is opening in the former Extra Virgin space.
Colorful new “coming soon” graphics have been placed in the windows of the restaurant while the construction takes place.
