Wasabi moving to Snow Eagle Brewing; Whitewater to reopen under new management

The sign in the window Tuesday at Wasabi 
If you're hoping to get a sushi fix at Wasabi Japanese Restaurant down by the greenbelt, you're going to have to wait until Thursday.

Until Monday night, Wasabi was under the same roof as the Whitewater Grill. But restaurant owner Jerry Mitchell has sold the Whitewater side of the business and is moving Wasabi over to the Snow Eagle Brewing and Grill, which he also owns. Wasabi will reopen there Thursday.

Mitchell said he made a deal with Dane Watkins, landlord of Eagle Rock Station, where Whitewater, Wasabi and Snow Eagle are located, and that Watkins has found a new person Joel Henry, to run the Whitewater. Efforts to reach Watkins this afternoon were unsuccessful.
