To fans of Toyotomi at 11th and Moore, fear not. The affordable (mostly) takeout sushi place did close up shop at 11th and Moore streets, but it is resurfacing at 1627 Ritner St., which used to be Chiarella’s Gourmet Pizza.
We hear that a rent increase prompted the move, though we haven’t been able to get a hold of the owner to confirm that.
The sushi joint, which falls within the borders of the relatively new Melrose Civic Association, closed on June 30 after consistently getting relatively good reviews on Yelp. Let’s hope they can get open and slinging sushi in the new spot soon.
