Sonny Nguyen, the man behind such popular Japanese concepts as Domu and Tori Tori, is bringing Orlando’s very first “standing sushi bar” to Mills 50.

EDOBOY, so named for the Edo Period, when sushi was eaten standing up, will act as an extension to Tori Tori, Nguyen’s popular yakitori/kushiyaki house, and will be situated behind the restaurant at 728 N. Thornton Ave., former home of Beauty on the Spot and Market at Mills 50.

Tyler Inthavongsa, who worked for four years at Domu, will be the lead sushi chef.
