ASA Peruvian Tapas & Sushi, which brought new and bright fare to downtown Huntington, has closed after less than a year.
The ownership cited "reasons beyond our control," but added that it expected to reopen locally "very soon."

Standout dishes included Jong's chef's choice sushi, accented with toppings such as sesame aioli, sweet miso, chimichurri, tomatillo salsa and frizzled onion; fluke tiradito; tacos with uncooked fish; pan-fried beef dumplings; sausage sliders; and tempura-style shrimp, eggplant, and sweet potato.
