Sushi featured at new Fortville restaurant

For Tim Breuning, a love of food combined with a desire to give back has spurred his latest endeavor, a one of a kind restaurant in Fortville.


Breuning recently opened Bonsai Fortville, a sushi restaurant that delivers quite a few options, according to the owner. The restaurant is located at 18 S. Main St., Fortville.


“I always wanted to run a sushi place. I have cousins who attended Mt. Vernon. We chose Fortville because of the community and the small town charm,” said Bruening, who has been in the restaurant business for eight years.


To open a restaurant where his family attended school is “very cool,” he told Giant FM.


“I also coached several Mt. Vernon baseball players in travel baseball. The restaurant has been well received in the community. I love serving the community and working hard to give them the best product possible,” he said.


While sushi is the prominent dish, it is not the only dish, Breuning said.


“We have more than just sushi. We have several Asian dishes, burgers and tenderloins. We also offer some deep fried rolls and rolls made with fried chicken, sweet potatoes and veggies. It is a great way to start trying sushi,” he told Giant FM.


Bonsai Fortville is open Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.
