As reported in June, owner Larry Chi was planning his flagship restaurant's first major cosmetic makeover. The result was unveiled last week, and we're pleased to report that it's the same neighborhood spot we know, and menu we've grown to
love, over the past 16 years. It's just a little cooler on the inside. Actually, a lot cooler.
Note to UM students: Akashi finally got some mojo, but don't worry. It doesn't mean your wallets will lose theirs. As far as we can tell, the same great prices are sticking around, like the vintage The Depot facade. Smart move.
Follow the jump for pictures and stop by for a three-fish-fabulous Sunset Roll with extra masago or an Alex original or #2, named after a particular regular. We think a Short Order Roll could be a fun addition. What would you fill such a creation with? Let us know on the comment thread, and we may just petition for it...
