After a surprisingly busy soft opening, Stanley Marketplace’s sushi spot, Misaki, is now open for lunch and dinner.

“We wanted sushi at Stanley from the very beginning,” Stanley co-founder Mark Shaker said in a release, “but it took us a while to find the right team. We’re thrilled that Misaki is opening. Their space really rounds out that side of the marketplace and adds to the diversity of offerings here.”
