Kona Grill, the 23-unit modern American grill and sushi bar, debuted an updated design prototype at its Chandler Fashion Center unit in Arizona in late 2012.

The 10-year-old, 325-seat restaurant was remodeled to sport a lighter, more contemporary look and feel that incorporates exotic veneers, various mosaic insets, vertical beveled stone, raised fabric panels and fire and water elements.

"We are updating the look of our restaurant to reflect modern influences and to create a lasting impression on our guests that will stand the test of time," said Marci Rude, vice president of development for Kona Grill, Inc.
