The Shutter: Flashy, Odd Hime Calls It Quits

New, 1 comment

The Marina: Thanks to a combination of a tough location and a tougher economy, Hime has succumbed to the shutter. The combination modern/traditional Japanese eatery was in an odd, stand-alone 120-seat space on the desolate stretch of Lombard Street. The building itself bears resemblance to a chain restaurant, though when Hime moved in, the interior was transformed into a sleek, trendy one. By all accounts, the food was well done; in his 2.5-star review of the place back in 2006, Bauer said he'd be "hard pressed to find better sushi in the city." But alas, some obstacles are too difficult to overcome. Godspeed, Hime.
