Bland as ever, but I mean that in a good way - really! Yes, they are still in business. I dined at their SoHo location a few nights ago. I had salmon and my date had Soba noodles. Miso soup and daikon radish were our first courses. All of it was fine - very healthy, and you feel virtous afterwards. Their 13th St. location is also still in business. I guess I should have answered you on the Manhattan board, although this crave board is aimed at NYC in particular, so maybe it's not so grave an offense, and you *were* craving Souen's chow - right?
