Sumi's back! (formerly Kuishinbo in Bend, OR)

I just heard that Sumi, the owner of the recently closed Kuishinbo Kitchen on Minnesota in downtown Bend, has found a new location. She's going to reopen in the former Mercury Diner location on College Way (by La Rosa and Kava Coffee). Even better: she plans to start serving dinner.

Now if only El Super Burrito would have as much luck finding a new spot . . .

I'm truly sad to read the Hans will soon be joining the list "former" downtown Bend restaurants. My office is downtown, and I'm slowly loosing my favorite lunch spots.

  1. Olaf, we have never tried Kuishinbo, so don't know what we have missed. Also, we were not aware that Mercury Diner had died a second death, so I am concerned about my Chowhound credentials.

    Having said that, we like High Tides, Bend Brewery and Cafe Sintra for lunch. Who else should we try?
