The Castro: Fresh balloons mean open, but alas, dead balloons mean doneski. Right on schedule, this weekend marked the swan song of 23-year-old fusion joint Sumi. We shared the namesake proprietor's goodbye letter a few weeks ago, when Sumi first announced her retirement, and now, one final weekend bash was met by the official arrival of the shutter. Next up for the space: it will soon become Sumi Sushi, with much of the same staff still aboard, albeit with a tweaked menu and concept.
