Dormont has gained another new restaurant with the recent opening of Katana on West Liberty Avenue. Owner Mandy Lin's
also operates Sushi Boat, a take-out restaurant in Central Oakland.
Katana features two hibachi grills, which includes two sets of four tables, able to accommodate up to 35 guests. In addition to a full menu of Chinese and Japanese cuisine, Katana boasts elaborate presentations from its gourmet sushi bar. Lin highlights two of her favorite specials: tuna wasabi dumplings, and a grilled white fish in a ponzu sauce.
Lin says she and her husband chose Dormont because they like the area, and felt it was a good place to open a business. Their restaurant replaces a home furnishings store which has since moved to a new location. The space was completely remodeled for the restaurant, from floor to ceiling, including an all-new industrial kitchen.
The restaurant seats approximately 90, and is open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Katana is located at 3229 W. Liberty Avenue, Dormont. 412-388-1800
