The Tennessean: Asian Fusion Restaurant Coming to $200 Million Bellevue Project

The owner of a Thai and Japanese sushi restaurant concept has leased space at the $200 million One Bellevue Place mixed-used development with plans to open a second Nashville location by year's end.

The move comes roughly six months after The Eastern Peak took over the former Thai Star space at 536 Thompson Lane in Nashville,

That sister concept to Jasmine Thai Cuisine and Sushi Bar in Murray and Paducah, the latest restaurant signed up for  space at the redevelopment project that's rising on the site of the former Bellevue Center mall.  Chicken Salad Chick, Chili's Grill & Bar, Panera Bread, Desano Pizza Bakery, Wild Eggs and The Well Coffeehouse will be among other tenants.

The Eastern Peak Asian fusion concept offers Japanese and Thai fare including sushi, noodles, curries and stir-frys. Appetizers, soups and salads are also available with a full bar. "We have a really good happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays only," said Laura Thornton, its spokeswoman.
