Shima Sushi (4429 Wallingford Ave N) will wrap its last sushi roll in Wallingford this Friday, October 30th. The owners, the same folks who own Hawaiian Breeze (which is also out), say that they were unable to negotiate an affordable lease for the space, but plan to re-open elsewhere when they can find a spot. Customers who come through this week are being encouraged to sign up for their e-mail list to get the notice when they do.
I hadn’t been in before, but popped in last night to confirm the story. It’s always re-assuring to see the place filled mostly with English as a Second Language asian people in a sushi restaurant. Somehow, it gives me the sense it passes muster with those who can tell the difference. I had some unagi and anago, and found both pieces rich, creamy and generous. Sorry that it took them leaving for me to try it out!
