Just and fyi,
After dining at Ubon in the Beverly Center the other night I heard from the staff that it's closing at the end of the month.
Evidently there's a new owner, and there will be a new Japanese restaurant there. Some staff are staying and some are leaving.
While not necessarily a chowhound fave, it was one of mine, I think the best udon noodles in the area (mishima just ain't doing it for me) and better than ANYTHING else in the Beverly Center.
