Nisen, the glittery and contemporary Japanese restaurants in Woodbury and Commack, will welcome a third location soon, at the site of  the closed Barolo in Melville.

Barolo opened about 15 years ago,  transforming what for approximately the same span had been Herrmann's Black Sheep, turning an old-fashioned continental into an Italian and sometimes New American spot.

Nisen Woodbury recently was listed in Newsday as one of the top sushi restaurants on Long Island. The Commack branch also has earned very favorable reviews.

Jessie Wang, manager of Nisen Woodbury, said that the same style of food served at the Woodbury and Commack restaurants would be at the Melville one. The date for the opening hasn't been set yet. Work is under way at the site.

The new Nisen will be at 1197 Walt Whitman Rd., Melville, just off Route110, near the Melville fire department.
