Tokyo Sushi Cafe at BayWalk will close this week


Sushi cafe at Baywalk WILL close

Tokyo Sushi Cafe at BayWalk is scheduled to close Wednesday. Owner Linh Luu received notice from BayWalk owner Bill Edwards that her month-to-month lease would not be extended. Though sales have suffered with the decline of BayWalk, Luu said she has about 150 loyal customers she will miss. "Up to the last three years we were actually doing very well for that small sized restaurant," she said. Luu said she was behind on rent to the previous owners. She owns two other restaurants, Hiro's Tokyo Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, at 5250 Fourth St. N, and Ocean Blue in Tampa.
