Momoyama, the Japanese hibachi joint inside the hard-hit Lundy’s building at 1901 Emmons Avenue, only just began their cleanup efforts on Friday. When we stopped by, workers were there getting wooden boards up to secure the location, after Sandy’s flood waters battered the door. Like other establishments in Lundy’s ground level, Momoyama received upwards of…

I know many of you were in deep despair when Sheepshead Bay Road’s longtime sushi establishment, Chikurin, bid a sad farewell to the oversaturated sushi-laden thoroughfare and moved into the ground floor of 1702 Avenue Z. Fret not, sushi aficionados, for filling in the vacancy — although not in the same space as Chikurin once…

There will soon be one less sushi restaurant dotting the two-block stretch of Sheepshead Bay Road, aka, “Sushi Row,” between Jerome Avenue and Shore Parkway. Chikurin, currently located at 1661 Sheepshead Bay Road, is moving out, but before we shout “domo arigato” (to the ubiquitous sushi eateries — not to Chikurin itself), it turns out…

I knew a zombie apocalypse would come eventually, but I really thought it would be people rising from the dead. Apparently, in Sheepshead Bay, it’s sushi restaurants. Mikado Sushi at 1734 Sheepshead Bay Road very quietly closed its doors last week, and it seemed like overnight the sign came down, the interior was renovated, and a new…

This was posted up yesterday on the newly-installed doors of Ichiko Sushi at 1650 Sheepshead Bay Road. It says, “Tomorrow – We are OPEN!!!” I guess that makes today… Hey, anyone want to grab lunch with me and give these guys a go?

Looks like we spoke too soon when we wrote two weeks ago that 1650 Sheepshead Bay Road was done with sushi. Way back then, Sakura II had closed down and, after some decay, the signage was removed. We were thinking, “Hey, that looks like a fantastic location for a cell phone shop!” But no, we’re…

Sakura II was one of Sheepshead Bay Road’s first sushi joints, if not the first. But as the flashier places moved in, competition got stiff. Sakura’s old-school appeal didn’t reel in the crowds, and so it went belly up a few months ago. Since then its signage decayed, until the landlord finally tore it down…

A reader of Sheepshead Bites sent in the following complaint. I’ve heard similar complaints, but never experienced it myself. Are sushi places rounding up the bill? Are they the only ones? I can go out and spend a lot of money on dinner or a play but one thing makes me nuts. I don’t like…
