So the nice people at Geta told me that they're opening a new place on Piedmont Ave., either near or directly next door to the Mr. Green Bubble. I was just picking up a takeout order and it was really crowded, so I didn't have a chance to get a lot of details, but from what I could glean:
- It's going to be an izakaya.
- Their sushi / donburi shop will still be open at its original location.
- The new place is tentatively slated to open sometime next month.
Anyone have any information beyond that? I'm pretty excited about this - I think, given that the price point is so reasonable, Geta is somewhat underrated on this board. The donburi (especially the "katsu don") are in my regular takeout rotation, and it's the only place I ever get takeout sushi from. It's simple, honest food.
