Sushi & More
The unique concept of Wave was originally brought to life in July 2017 in the heart of downtown Mount Dora, Florida. After working in the Restaurant industry for 25 years, chef and owner Jonathan McKinney opened a brick-and-mortar of his very own offering unique sushi creations, hibachi-style dishes, and small plates. Merging older techniques with a modern twist is the heart and soul of this concept. Jonathan’s idea was to make traditional sushi less intimidating and more exciting for first time sushi eaters, and sushi enthusiasts alike. Originally starting off with sushi donuts and sushi burritos, Wave’s menu has exploded over the years to include sushi burgers, sushi tacos, sushi hotdogs, and more!
In April 2022, Wave was expanded into a larger space within the same building to continue the pursuit of growth and creativity. Ride the Wave at 301 North Baker Street Suite 101 MountDora, FL (bottom floor)
Meet the Owner
In 2016, while Jonathan was working for his father at a traditional hibachi/sushi restaurant, he had the wild idea to add sushi donuts and sushi burritos to his menu.
His father immediately rejected the idea which gave Jonathan the courage to open Wave Asian Bistro and Sushi. Since then, he has added multiple other crazy sushi creations to the menu such as the Sushi Burger, Sushi Pizza, Sushi Taco, Sushi Hotdog, and more which have each been a viral hit and viewed on the internet by millions.
When Jonathan isn’t working on Wave he enjoys traveling and trying new food.
