The opening is expected in summer.

Kashi stands out with colorful "signature" sushi rolls, plus dishes not usually associated with Japanese kitchens, such as shrimp-and-lobster risotto, blue crab fajitas, tuna tortillas, and Kobe-style meatballs. There's a popular hibachi area at the Rockville Centre restaurant.

Kashi in Huntington is at 12 Elm St.; 631-923-1960. Kashi in Rockville Centre is at 222 Sunrise Hwy.; 516-442-7600.
