Sushi lovers can enjoy two stories of sushi in the Smithtown area on Thursday night with the opening of Nisen 347, located at the intersection of Middle Country Road and Route 347. 

Owner Tom Lam said Nisen 347 will open its doors at 5 p.m. on Thursday to serve dinner. Reservations can be made for those eager to dine at the contemporary sushi restaurant, while the bar and lounge are open only to walk-in customers. 

The first floor of Nisen 347 will serve as a bar and lounge area, while the second floor serves as the main dining area. 

"It will be very contemporary like our Commack location," Lam told Patch in June. "We will also have a private room in the basement for parties."

Nisen 347 takes over a troubled location has seen a few eateries come and go including Intermezzo and Ara International Grille and Bar, which closed in December 2011.

I'd love to check this place out. I just hope the curse of this location doesn't affect Nisen 347!

Not a sushi fan , but I wish them luck . There are so many sushi places now.

What may help this place survive are their other locales which have been well received. I hope so. That whole vacant strip mall corner is an eyesore.

Its that location . Hard corner to navigate . That vacant strip mall should be demolished.

Can't disagree with you on either point, Camlle.
