“Unfortunately, CO on King Street will not offer sushi,” publicist Jonah Jeter says. “However Greg isn’t ruling out the idea of opening a CO Sushi in the Charleston area.”
The Myrtle Beach restaurant, CO Sushi, is scheduled to open in early 2014, two years after CO debuted downtown. CO’s current executive chef — Tarquino Vintimilla, a veteran of Vegas sushi bars — will transfer to CO Sushi to serve as its executive chef.
“Vintimilla’s vast experience in Asian cuisine and passion for local sourcing will help shape CO Sushi,” Jeter says.
According to the incipient restaurant’s Facebook page, the menu will feature “a full sushi menu alongside a few of our contemporary Vietnamese specialties such as pho, wok dishes, and dumplings that we’ve brought over from our Charleston location.”
CO Sushi will be located at 3098 Deville Street.
