Donguri chef

Does anyone know what became of chef Shuji Fujita, founder and former owner of Donguri, on the Upper East Side?

I know he and his wife sold the place last year to Kai. Any word from them since then?

    I'm not positive, but I heard somewhere that he hurt his back, and that was why he sold the restaurant.

    They closed down the restaurant and hosted my 40th Birthday party, which was a private dinner for 24 people. It was an amazing meal.

    I really miss them.

      I miss them too. It was a wonderful place. Have you been back recently? How precipitous is the decline?
