    Holy crap, that sucks. SoM is where my wife and I had our first date — and where we return each year around our anniversary.

    It closes on 8/15…

  3. James says:

    I’ve had some first dates there too, but that was like 10 years ago when the food was better. The last few times I’ve been, it’s really gone down hill.

    Another one bites the dust.

    Even 5-6 years ago it was good. Just in the last 3-4 years did it really start to slide. Unfortunate to see in my neighborhood, but at least Pei Wei customers might be able to park there now without being towed.

    Oh, I’ll miss that too…seeing vehicles being loaded up on tow trucks without being tied down or fastened, watching as the truck flies down the street and takes corners like in the Jason Bourne movies, then seeing the vehicle fall off the truck.

    It was esepcially memorable when your car was towed while you were inside eating at Sushi on McK.

    @Nina Coincidentally, 4 years ago was our first date there. So I guess we did them in.

    Live report:Having lunch @ SOM. It’s good. Back to you in the studio.

    I ate there a couple weeks ago, it was the only sushi place we could find that was open after 10:00 on a Sunday night. Best sushi I’d had in a long, long time.

  10. El Rey says:

    RIP SoM. I will miss it. Good and inexpensive sushi is hard to find in this town. Now I just have to stick with Deep $ushi.

    It HASN’T closed yet!

    It’s closing Aug 15th. The owner wants to retire.
