SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kona Grill, Inc. (Nasdaq:KONA), an American grill and sushi bar, announced the opening of its newest restaurant in San Juan, Puerto Rico on March 26, 2015.

The new Kona Grill is located at The Mall of San Juan, a brand new, upscale, one million plus square foot, multi-level retail destination center. The Mall of San Juan is positioned at the intersection of the PR-17, PR-8, PR-181, and PR-26 highways, and is within a few miles from both the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and the San Juan financial district. The restaurant features distinctive dining areas that include an indoor-outdoor patio and bar, exhibition sushi bar, and private dining area.

These features will allow customers to enjoy all that Kona Grill has to offer: flavorful American food with international influences; an extensive sushi menu; and signature beverage offerings.

"Opening in the center of San Juan puts our new restaurant in the middle of one of the densest markets yet. We anticipate many of San Juan's four million visitors and two and a half million residents will walk away highly impressed with our differentiated polished casual dining experience. The Mall of San Juan is a first-of-its-kind, high-end, retail center and opening a new restaurant in this attractive location reinforces our view that Kona Grill is a cut above its peers and is compatible to a wide variety of real estate options," said Berke Bakay, President and CEO.
