Openings & Announcements 

Granville’s new Korean and sushi spot is ready to debut. Hashi, meaning “bridge” in Japanese, is set to open for lunch and dinner this Wednesday, Oct. 6, through Sunday at 128 E. Broadway, formerly Moe’s Original BBQ. The restaurant is the work of Granville resident Steven Baldwin and his mother, Sukye. A general contractor and real estate investor, Baldwin spent months renovating the former barbecue joint. The menu features sushi prepared by chef Shabrina Thomas, using fish overnighted from Japan. Meanwhile, the Korean cuisine is being prepared by Baldwin’s aunt (“imo” in Korean), recently a cook at Min-Ga Korean Restaurant on Bethel Road. “They’ll come for the sushi, but they’ll keep coming back for the Korean food,” Baldwin predicted. Above Hashi, a music venue, cocktail bar and Korean street food spot dubbed Hashi Up is in the works. Baldwin says it will be the only bar in town open until 2 a.m. Stay tuned for more on that opening.
