There's a new sushi bar and Japanese bakery open in Champaign, but you can only catch the new restaurant for lunch on the weekends right now. Run by Chef Ken Ishibashi, ISHI is a new restaurant in town operating out of the former Yellowfin location.

In addition to sushi, the new spot will also feature baked goods from Kaori's Oven. Here's a peek at the menu.

Currently, ISHI is operating with limited hours as they finish some final design elements. They will have an outdoor sign and website soon. You can find updates about the restaurant on the chef's Facebook page or visit the new restaurant on the weekends.

Take a look at some of the dishes ISHI has been making.
