Is J-Town Closed?

Charles Yu Mar 30, 2011 07:53 PM

Is the J-Town closing permenant or temporarily due to the current Japan situation?
Any idea how Taro Fish is faring these days?

    Taro's made a comment about their fish on a recent Toronto Star report about the safety of their products (http://www.thestar.com/news/article/9...). I'm sure that they're all seeing a slight slump. When I was at Inatei the other day, they even provided a list of their seafood with corresponding geographic origins citing that some of their customers were worried.

      Taro moved long ago...Haven't seen any advisories yet on Japanese food exports but should they appear J-Town won't be a happy place.

              picked up sushi from taro's at the end of the day today.... there were as many employees as i expected there at that hour and the place was emptier but it was, again, the end of the day. i think they're doing fine.
