Sushi downtown and other news
Remember we were bemoaning the lack of sushi downtown? Well, now KoSho, the only place besides Benihana where you can get hamachi and barbecued eel, is going to move to a little place in Northside! The new mecca for restaurants, I guess. It will take over the Madison's Grocery spot. Not until June or July and Chef Yukio says he'd love a little place downtown, too. . ..
NuVo in Florence is open for lunch. Barleycorn's in Lakeside Park has re-opened after renovating. So has Pelican's Reef in Anderson Township after they renovated and expanded. Mitchell's Fish Market in Newport is remodeling, too: they'll be closed for a week starting next Monday. (They are now owned by Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, the least intuitive name for a business since Fifth Third Bank)
Also, John Phillips at Crestview Hills is opening on Monday.
