TakoSushi, 1115 Assembly Street: November 2019   1 comment

Posted at 11:09 pm in closing












I've been in this building at least once, back when it was Doc's Gumbo Grille, but as I view Sushi as Superman views Kryptonite, it never even occurred to me to visit TakoSushi. I see from the various writeups on the closing that they had a Southwest component, which I might have guessed from the Tako, except that sounds very like a Japanese word when spelled that way. While I have not been inside, I have admired the very visible and shiny ventilator for years. I also notice that the Yin/Yang mural is a Blue Sky creation.

According to the Takosushi website and statements to the press, the restaurant considered the building to be unsafe. The State says the owner disputes that, and says that any interior damage would be the tenant's responsibility to fix. Here are two more takes from ColaDaily and WLTX

In a sign of the times, I could not get close enough to the front door to get a good picture of the posted notice (though you can probably read it on the click-through) because there is already someone sleeping in the doorway.

  1. I'm sure those in the sushi world know the meaning of tako. But me being half Japanese and having my mom speaking Japanese all the time, I know tako means octopus. So yeah, I always found it weird that they would play on the name taco with a Japanese word meaning octopus. Maybe they didn't even know. OctopusSushi.
