Teriyaki Row (aka, Smith St.)

As if we needed further proof that Smith St. has gone right into the nutbox *rim shot* another Japanese joint is opening up. This time, in the old Videomania space the sign just went up for "Kiku, Japanese Fusion and Lounge." I assume an outpost of the same restaurant in the Slope.

So if my calculations are correct that means three trad japanese restaurants (Hana, Ki, Kyoto), one "fusion" restaurant (Kiku), and one chinese restaurant that also does sushi (Szechuan Garden). And that's just between Dean and Douglass.

I'm not sure what the menu of impending veggie fusions "Wild Ginger" yet.

On the bright side, it looks like that's it for the season... no more storefronts being worked on as far as I can tell. On the not so bright side, that means that the northside of Smith will continue to lack a BBQ joint, decent pizza or mexican.
