After serving Asian cuisine with a Japanese twist since last February, Kenta in Melville officially closed its doors in December.
Located at 1197 Walt Whitman Road, the vibrate restaurant was popular for its sushi platters. Its menu offered sushi, sashimi, specialty rolls and maki rolls, which included shrimp tempura and cucumber roll, spicy tuna roll and spider roll.
Kenta also offered outdoor dining, an atmosphere for sporting events and hosted celebratory parties.
“Thank you to all that have supported our sushi adventure,” said Kenta owners in a Facebook post, adding that they built a “successful brand that generated rave reviews.”
Kenta had taken over the establishment after the closing of another restaurant, Nisen 110. Kenta will be succeeded by Aoki Sushi, according to the Facebook post, which also specializes in sushi.
“We want to wish the new owners the best of luck,” the post said. “From kenta sushi, we’re signing off.”
