Shima Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar Coming Soon, Bringing Hibachi & Hand-Crafted Sushi to Sanibel

Sanibel Island, Fla. — Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, a unique tropical resort on Sanibel Island is the site of a restaurant that cannot be found elsewhere on the island. Shima Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar construction is underway joining three onsite dining locations to give resort guests, island visitors and residents one more Gulf-front option at Sundial.

Hibachi dining, once an island favorite dining location, is coming back better than ever. Shima will feature a full Japanese-style menu of high-quality food, expertly presented. Vibrant sushi rolls will be prepared by a third generation sushi chef.

“We are excited to give the community and our guests the only hibachi-style dining experience in the area. Adults and children alike will enjoy watching expert chefs perform culinary entertainment while preparing their meals,” said Criss Menassa, executive chef at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. “The addition of Shima to our onsite restaurants will ensure visitors have an option for whatever their tastes may be.”

Shima will be in good company, as Sundial was recently named Best Waterfront Dining in Southwest Florida. The new restaurant will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, providing a different kind of dining experience for residents and visitors on and off the island. The menu, which includes special options for children, is offered at four large hibachi grills
