SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Kona Grill, Inc. (NASDAQ: KONA), an American grill and sushi bar, announced the opening of its newest restaurant in El Paso, Texas on June 23, 2014.

The new Kona Grill is the latest addition to The Fountains at Farah, a regional lifestyle center located at 8889 Gateway West Boulevard, which is adjacent to the northeast corner of Hawkins Boulevard and Interstate 10.
