A grand new sushi concept is on its way to downtown Carlsbad. The owners of Love Boat Sushi, which has four area locations, have purchased a site near Carlsbad Village and plan to open a 3,000-square-foot sushi restaurant and lounge in a space that once housed Chin's Szechwan Cuisine.
The location's transformation will be dramatic, crafted from wood, concrete and steel with accents of color and subtle texturing from angled origami tiles lining the ceiling and select walls; floor-to-ceiling windows will give an aquarium effect.
With a capacity of 80 to 100 people, Blue Ocean will serve lunch and dinner and offer cocktails; in addition to a large sushi bar, there will also be a robata-style cooking area, for grilling up food on skewers. Phase two of the project will bring outdoor patio seating.
