The new mixed-use development in the Heights, M-K-T, has a new tenant in Blue Sushi Sake Grill, an Omaha-based restaurant.
The grill will open this summer on the M-K-T property at 600 N. Shepherd Dr., according to CultureMap. The restaurant is also part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium: Seafood Watch program, which guarantees its fish was humanely caught and/or raised.
The restaurant will serve a large selection of sushi and sashimi as well as a variety of grilled items.
Patriot Burger campaign raises over $10,000
On Oct. 1 of last year, LASCO Enterprises restaurants, including Max’s Wine Dive at 4720 Washington Ave., introduced the Patriot Burger to its menu.
Each restaurant’s executive chef created a unique Patriot Burger for $15. It was available until Dec. 31. For each burger sold, $5 went directly to Combined Arms, a nonprofit that provides veterans access to valuable resources.
From October to December the Patriot Burger initiative raised awareness and brought in $17,510 in funds for Combined Arms.
On Dec. 15, as LASCO Enterprises was closing in on 1,800 Patriot Burgers with a goal of 2,000, owner Jerry Lasco upped the stakes and launched a two-week personal fundraiser, asking friends, family, colleagues and patrons to join the cause. He donated private dinners, wine tastings and Patriot Burgers to incentivize donors. Having already raised $10,000, through this personal fundraiser, $7,510 more was raised for Combined Arms.
