Zuma By Chef Ninja, a Japanese-Latin fusion restaurant that opened on October 6, 2023 at 4866 Cordell Ave (formerly Brickside) appears to have closed.

According to a report by Robert Dyer, on Friday there was signage on the building posted by the property owners stating the business had closed and that anyone making unauthorized entry would be considered breaking and entering. By Saturday, the signage had been removed, but the restaurant remained closed.

About Chef Mitsuhisa Nishio, aka “Michu” or “Chef Ninja”: “Mitsuhisa Nishio, better known to the public as “El Ninja”, is a world-renowned chef who specializes in Asian-Latin fusion cuisine. Despite being of full Japanese descent, Chef Ninja was born and raised in Constanza – a lovely town in the Dominican Republic. There is no doubt that Ninja takes pride in both of his co-cultures. This sense of pride is displayed through his art where he fuses traditional Japanese foods with the savory, full of taste ingredients of Dominican cuisine. Although the food of said cultures are so different, Chef Ninja has found a way to perfectly bridge the gap between his two nationalities through his eccentric dishes. What’s more Japanese-Dominican than a sushi roll with sweet plantains placed on top?”
