The Eater blog is reporting that Taku is not just closed for vacation. Instead, the owners are turning it into "a slow-simmered Italian" place -- like we need more Italian in the neighborhood like I need another hole in the head.
We need confirmation (I'm in denial). I hope the fact that Ki Sushi opened just a few doors down did not drive them out. A pitiful loss if Taku is indeed gone for good.
