Spring, TX – Uptown Sushi owners, Peggy and Daniel Chang, have just secured a 3,700-square-foot space for a new restaurant concept. Set to open as part of north Houston’s CityPlace, Sushi Rebel will be their second Japanese restaurant.

When Uptown Sushi first opened 15 years ago, in The Galleria area’s Uptown Park, it brought traditional Japanese dining to the Houston area. Since that day, the restaurant has continued to maintain its spot in town as the “best and buzziest” for trendy Japanese dining. The restaurant recently underwent interior renovations, completely revitalizing the place while still keeping the beloved menu of sashimi platters and sushi rolls the same.

“This announcement is indicative of the dynamic operators that are forging a one-of-a-kind ambience at CityPlace. The Changs are masters at merging high-quality cuisine with a high-energy environment, and Sushi Rebel will wow with its distinctive décor and an environment designed to appeal from lunch into late night,” said Robert Fields, President and CEO at Patrinely Group, in a statement.

Rebel Sushi will be located at 1700 Lake Plaza Drive, Spring, and will be joined by neighbors ExxonMobil, HP, ABS, and Southwestern Energy. An opening date for Rebel Sushi has not yet been announced.

Fellow eateries of the future CityPlace will include Island Grill, Houston bakery Common Bond, and the new Star Cinema Grill, a 10-screen dine-in movie theater.
