“Celebrating 20 years doing something good for the community that been so good to us just feels right,” commented Co-Owner Rosie Gordon Mochizuki.  In addition, “we love this location in Arlington, the Lee Harrison Shopping Center is a vibrant place, a natural draw for families and a mecca for kids.”

“When my husband, Shoji Mochizuki, immigrated from Japan, he wanted to ‘give back’ some of what America gave to him. We opened Sushi-Zen to create jobs, serve delicious food, and create a family friendly dining experience,” said Rosie. 

The Japanese character for Zen in Sushi-Zen also means ‘dining table’—a time for family and friends to share a meal and dialogue. With a focus on natural, fresh food and a relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant has been a favorite for Arlington families since 1997.
Sushi-Zen Japanese Restaurant has been recognized multiple times as Best Arlington Restaurant and Best Sushi Restaurant by local community members in Arlington Magazine annual Best of Arlington survey. Click here to learn more about Sushi Zen’s story.
