The Lounge

Our Story

Chopsticks | The Lounge

Over the years, Next Door has transformed from a bar and grill into a fine dining restaurant, a center of culinary innovation where skilled chefs prepare the highest quality seasonal food and where guests are met with unparalleled service. Welcome to The Lounge, a new one-of-a-kind dining experience inside Next Door.

A relaxed and sophisticated space, The Lounge incorporates delicious Japanese flavors in its hand-crafted sushi, skewers, and starters, all made exclusively for The Lounge. Our chefs cook the ingredients on a robata grill over the heat of Binchotan charcoal, which is derived from Japanese oak, to achieve a flavor that is truly unique. This traditional technique brings forth the simplicity of the dishes, creating a meal you’re sure to remember.

Our Commitment to Staying Healthy:

All tables and seats are placed six feet apart and will be sanitized immediately after use. Our staff is required to wear appropriate personal protective equipment, including face coverings, at all times. Guests must wear face coverings at all times, except while seated.
