Yakko San N. Miami Beach Grand Re-Opening

We accidentally stumbled onto the grand opening of the new location - we've been away and I thought they'd moved already. We only ordered a handful of dishes ( had conservative teen-ager in tow; he found the octopus in the pancakes that I thought I could sneak into him ) and what we had was up to the old standards thank goodness, although there weren't the specials we looked forward to, but it was the first day, so I think they wanted to keep it simple.
That said, it's a very different experience. I congratulate them on the new digs; it's lavish compared with the old West Dixie place, and quite big. Long L shaped counter seating, full bar. The staff ( big staff ) was amazingly organized for an opening day, and very excited. They had drummers outside to celebrate. The place was packed. All good for them. I wish them the best. I just can't help feeling a little nostalgic for the old location; it had a charm and spirit that I will miss. Oh well; life is change. sigh.
