A family-owned favorite is returning to the Druid City as Ichiban Japanese Grill has announced an opening date for its new downtown restaurant.

Ichiban Japanese Grill shared the exciting news to Facebook Monday, stating that a Grand Opening is slated for Friday, July 23, for the new University Boulevard location.

Ichiban Japanese Grill closed the doors of its original location in mid-March after being forced to relocate following new development plans from property owner Hackberry LLC. Ichiban's neighbor, Sitar Indian Restaurant, was also forced to relocate before opening a new restaurant on 15th Street.

Ichiban Japanese Grill will limit its offerings to to-go orders only but will have outdoor seating available. All customers are encouraged to wear masks in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
