32 Fahrenheit Japanese Bistro opens in Menlo Park

Uploaded: Nov 22, 2017
Menlo Park has a new Japanese restaurant, the third to open in the city in the last six months.

32 Fahrenheit Japanese Bistro soft opened at 604 Santa Cruz Ave. last week, an employee confirmed. It follows the nearby openings of Octopus Japanese Restaurant at 925 El Camino Real in June and Kyosho Sushi at 605 Santa Cruz Ave. in July.

32 Fahrenheit is open for lunch and dinner. The lunch menu includes sushi rolls, all with imitation crab inside and other seafood and toppings, including Parmesan cheese. There are also salmon or tuna poke bowls, served with either rice or salad.

The larger dinner menu includes appetizers, sashimi, nigiri and different rolls.

The restaurant is open Sunday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5-9:30 p.m.; and Friday-Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5-10 p.m.

The owner, Barry Hung, also owns a Japanese restaurant in Newark called Pier 98 Sushi Bar & Grill.

Why don't you actually review the restaurant instead of rumming a free ad for them? What is the point of your column?

@Birdsncrap (Portola Valley):

Welcome to this website.

That's what Elena does in her blog, write about restaurant openings and closings. The website's operating company, Embarcadero Media has other people write the actual reviews.

Keep an eye out for those!

Hi Birdnscrap - Thanks for asking. As Reader said, the purpose of my blog is to inform readers about restaurant news in the area -- openings, closures, newsworthy events, etc. We have freelancers who write restaurant reviews, which is a separate endeavor.

Why do all new Japanese Restaurants only have Sushi ? What happened to Teriaki beef, chicken or salmon like the Bonzia used to have.vzMAN
