The South Campus Gateway is getting a taste for raw fish next month with the grand opening of FUSIAN, a fast-casual sushi restaurant where you can choose your own ingredients to create your own rolls. The restaurant is the brainchild of brothers (and OSU grads) Zach and Josh Weprin, along with partner Stephan Harman. They launched their first FUSIAN location in Downtown Cincinnati in 2010 with a second location at the University of Dayton.

“We love Columbus and we knew we’d be back,” said co-founder Zach. “Three years ago, it became our dream to develop this concept and bring it here. It is the perfect market for us and it feels great to be back home living and working in the Short North and Campus areas.”

The new restaurant will be located in a 2200 square foot space next to Potbelly in the South Campus Gateway. In addition to rolling your own sushi ideas, the menu also offers traditional types of sushi rolls, side salads, miso soup and edamame. FUSIAN also prides itself on offering gluten-free,vegan and vegetarian options as well.

“We’re really excited to have them here,” said Erin Prosser, Director of Community Relations at Campus Partners. “They have been very successful at their other locations and they are very excited about Columbus. Plus, I love sushi so I am really looking forward to having it around the corner.”

FUSIAN is planning to open the first week of February.

    That spot at the Gateway seems cursed. Hope they can make a go of it.

    This is really good news! My Mom lives within walking distance of the one in Dayton and when I’m visiting, we usually end up picking up carry-out. The carrot ginger salad is delicious!

  • Looks like they have a pretty solid concept. I hope the students in the area can appreciate it. I’d love to see something like this Downtown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duAKhAwlc7s

    Looks really good.

  • I have friends in Dayton that rave about this concept. Its basically Chipotle or Piada for sushi and its been a big hit there. Can’t wait for this to open.

    anybody know their price point?

    If it is fresh and unprocessed I will be happier than a clam. I am not a big fan of dealing with the campus area though. Are there parking meters near this? Worst case, is it still a buck to park in that garage?


    $6.75 to $8.25 per roll in Cincy here is the fax menu with pricing


  • I saw a sign out front this morning, saying they were open for business!
