Following nearly two weeks of renovations, Sake Express in Belmont, N.C., opened its refreshed dining room and restrooms to guests on April 16.

The improved restaurant on Park Street features a repainted dining room alongside new tables and layout seating changes. The restrooms were upgraded to include fresh paint and fixture updates. The approximate two-week renovation began on April 1. Sake Express remained open for half of the process, extending drive-thru and delivery services via Door Dash throughout the inner remodel.

Alongside the regional Montcross Area Chamber of Commerce, Sake Express owners Lisa Nguyen and Linda Nguyen Park hosted a ribbon cutting in Belmont to celebrate the renovations. The May 1 event welcomed familiar and new guests to the restaurant alongside networking and a Sake Express lunch.
