Shiro of Japan Close Their Atlas Park Restaurant, Cite COVID-19 Restrictions

Shiro of Japan (Facebook)

Aug. 21, 2020 Staff Report

A well-known Japanese restaurant known for its hibachi cooking has permanently closed its Atlas Park shopping center location.

Shiro of Japan, a traditional sushi and hibachi restaurant, announced last week that it has shuttered its 80-40 Cooper Ave restaurant.

The owners—Peter Faccibene and Hiro Ishikawa—notified customers on their website last week.

The decision, they said, stemmed from COVID-19 restrictions.

“It is with a heavy heart that we need to announce the official closing of our Atlas Park Location,” the owners posted on Facebook.

“The uncertainty of our ability to open inside dining and troubling times that the COVID Pandemic has brought upon us all has forced us to make this difficult decision.”

The owners operate another Shiro of Japan restaurant at Carle Place on Long Island and are urging existing customers to go there.
