Omi is gone (for now) - where next?

Hey all -
While John finds a new home for his Omi establishment (decided not to renew his lease in search of a more permanent abode), I am left with a huge sushi void. I was wondering if anyone who's been a big fan of Omi has found anything comparable both in quality of fish? People have said Ki is the place to be - but others, who have enjoyed Omi as much as I have, were very dismissive.

Any (downtown) suggestions would be very much appreciated! I'm certainly going to miss Omi while it's gone (though his catering business is still up and running).

            i'd appreciate some elaboration as well... has he already shut down or is he closing soon?

              closed. windows are papered up.


          2. My life is over as I know it. NO one comes close to John Lee. I only pray he stays in Toronto.

            Does anyone have a phone # for the catering business? If that's the only way for now then that's what I will do.
