YORK-A new Asian restaurant appears to be headed to The Edge District in Greater Williamsburg.

York County confirmed on June 3 that two permits have been approved for signage at the new restaurant, a new carry-out hibachi establishment located near Casa Pearl on Merrimac Trail. The new restaurant is called Hibachi 2 Go!

Hibachi 2 Go! will occupy the space that was formerly Long John Silver’s at 735 Merrimac Trail.

Long John Silver’s, a chain fried seafood restaurant, operated for more than 40 years at that property in York County before closing in 2019.

Hibachi 2 Go! is one of two new restaurants that will open soon in Greater Williamsburg. Signs are now also up for the new 7 Mares Mexican restaurant on Richmond Road in the City of Williamsburg.

Opening dates for Hibachi 2 Go! and 7 Mares Mexican Restaurant have not been announced.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
