Devenish gets its sushi back (YYC)

Looks like Fuji Yama is either moving to, or opening a second location in, the basement of the Devenish Building (17th Ave/8 St SW). This was, for many years, where Kyoto 17 was; I've only been to FY once and thought is was okay. Anyway, it's nice to see sushi (any resto, really) back in that gorgeous historic building.

    Do you know what happened to Kyoto? Did that bar beside it wind up taking it down with it or is "Concept" (ugh, what a terrible name) still there?

      No, Kyoto closed first, which forced the bar to close since they shared the kitchen (something to do with their liquor license, ie having to serve food with drinks).

        Ah, of course. I wonder what this opening means for that space, then (not that the Well or Concept ever did gangbusters, save for the weekends).
