Mikado announces it will close in December after 23 years

In a post Wednesday on Mikado’s Facebook page, the family-owned Japanese restaurant announced it will be closing after serving Indy in the Wholesale District for 23 years.

The restaurant will remain open until the beginning of December, promising to continue to crank out all the dishes diners have came to love.

Ownership also took time thanking guests, “for sharing your birthdays, date nights, marriage proposals, anniversaries and other special events with us. We hope your memories of us include our sushi, mystery rolls, salmon teriyaki and most importantly a fond enjoyable dining experience with us. We are incredibly grateful to have served you and made friends with so many of you.”

The restaurant prided itself on having authentic Japanese cuisine and exceptional service. Over the years, Mikado had also been a favorite destination for concert, festival & convention goers as it was in prime position near the Pavilion at Pan Am, Convention Center and Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

This isn’t goodbye for the family operated team. The post states “we will be back with a new project soon” after a much needed break. No word on what that concept will be but stay tuned for updates as they become available.
