From Zen to Yen ( a sign of the times? )

RicRios | Feb 25, 2008 12:00 PM

Used to be Zen Café at the California Mart.
Low profile, pretty decent, affordable sushi.
Closed in January, apparently couldn't turn a profit after 3 years in business.
Today (2/25/08), new ownership, new name, grand opening: Yen Sushi & Sake Bar.
Brochures at the door.
Horreur des horreurs, it's a chain: www.yensushiusa.com
Don't know, somehow, somewhere, by bone marrow resists the idea.
