Shiro will be closing

We are saddened to announce the end of an era: Shiro of Japan will be closing after over 50 years in business. We have had a long history of introducing traditional Japanese cuisine and culture to Long Island and are very proud of our efforts. Shiro is more than a restaurant – it is a special place that has created countless memories for thousands of families, couples and groups. 

All the partners want to personally express our thanks and gratitude to our friend and partner Hiro Ishikawa, whose legacy is undeniable and his contributions to the Long Island and New York dining experience and introducing Japanese cuisine to the public will continue to be felt for decades to come. Hiro will continue to operate Shiro of Japan’s off premise and catering business.

While disappointing, this is also a time to celebrate Shiro’s success and thank all of our loyal customers. On behalf of the owners and staff of Shiro of Japan, we humbly and with tremendous gratitude thank the more than 3 million patrons that have dined with us and for their many years of support.

All of the owners also owe a special debt of gratitude to our staff, some of whom have been with us for decades. Their commitment to service and our customers has been unmatched.

The property owners of 401 Old Country Rd, chose not to renew Shiro of Japan’s lease. We determined, after exhaustive research, that moving to a new location would not be economically viable.
Our final week of operation will begin on January 29 and the last dinner service will be on Saturday, February 4, 2023. Demand for the final dinner services is expected to be high and advanced reservations are strongly encouraged.

Once again, thank you to our loyal customers and friends. Shiro will close, but memories will live on.

With Deepest Respect and Gratitude.
Peter Faccibene and Hiro Ishikawa
