The restaurant’s dining room opened Aug. 1, which Wang said was because he wanted not only the customers to feel safe but also his employees. Wang said he did not open his restaurants to make a lot of money but to make people happy with healthy and good food and excel- lent service. The same goes for his employees, which is why he is closed on Tuesdays—so everyone can rest. “[When] you use your heart in making the food and making every family happy—that is what’s import- ant,” he said.

This led him to open Kyoto Sushi & Steak Asian Cuisine, rst with a Burnet location he opened in 2016, then with a Georgetown location he opened in June 2019. “[Georgetown oers] a beautiful, slow life. That’s what I like,” he said.
