Nancy’s about to quit SideDish. She just wrote me an email that’s too funny not to post. “HOLY [email protected]#$. HOLY [email protected]#$  Save me a space I’m coming to work at S30 HOLY [email protected]#$.”

It’s true. I’m fixin’ to move to West Dallas too. Teiichi “Teach” Sakurai is not only about to celebrate the four-year anniversary of Tei-An in One Arts Plaza, he also just signed on as the sixth and newest tenant at Sylvan | Thirty, the mixed-use development scheduled to open in Spring 2013. Teiichi’s yet-to-be-named fresh fish market will be in the corner building at the intersection of Sylvan and Fort Worth Avenues, and customers can directly walk from there to the other building that houses Cox Farms Market and Matador Meat & Wine.

Teiichi’s fish market is joining Cox Farms Market, Matador Meat & Wine, Pearl Cup Coffee, Sync Yoga & Wellness and a culinary incubator (overseen by Sharon Hage) at Sylvan | Thirty, which is set to become the culinary hotspot of 2013.

Wait, before all that happens, Teiichi still needs to come up with a name! SideDishers, y’all are good at this! Let’s help a brother out. What should Teiichi call his new fish market?
