Easashi, 32 Ave. A

I've been getting reports that this great restaurant has closed. Can anyone confirm/debunk? Thanks!

    1. Is it possible you mean Ebisu?

      I get Esashi & Ebisu confused all the time.

        I mean Esashi (sorry for the typo in the topic title). Tried to go there yesterday, gate down. A buddy of mine tried to get delivery twice last week & no answer.

        I get those 2 mixed up all the time as well... So Ebisu is closed too? Yeesh!

        1. re: thursdayclubjason

          Yes, it is very sad, but true. Esashi's space was sold, and they are closed forever. Now I don't know where to go for sushi... I guess I'll have to see if Takahashi is still good. Recs, anyone?

          1. re: thursdayclubjason

            Yikes! That is not good news. Now I'm nervous about Takahashi. Which is indeed still good, as of last month.

            1. re: small h

              I think (hope) that Takahachi is safe... I ate there last night, packed as usual. Let's just hope that it doesn't go the route of many of the East Village restaurants & become at WaMu or some other form of useless bank... Sigh...

              I'm really going to miss the Monk fish Liver at Esashi.

              1. re: thursdayclubjason

                I liked that monkfish liver as well. I used to also get it at Mie, which is also gone. This is good for the monkfish, I suppose.

                    Thanks! I don't see it on the website menu, though - is it a frequent special? Kanoyama is definitely on my go-to-very-soon list.

                      Hi small_h,

                      It is always listed on the today's special menu, but it is almost always there! Ankimo Sashimi - look for this.

                      1. re: kobetobiko

                        Aha! Much obliged. Another useful addition to my food-word bank.

                    2. re: kobetobiko

                      we were looking for this last night, natori is closed also! what is up with all these small places closing? in lieu of . . . places like le miu?
