The long-lived Torafuku is no more, after a quick and quiet transformation into Harikawa. The former sushi chef, Harikawa, is now the sole owner of the restaurant as of mid March, preparing "his personal interpretation of Japanese cuisine." According to a sign on the window, that interpretation seems to be sushi and grilled things, with a focus on Japanese wagyu. Torafuku was founded in 2002, gaining notoriety for its near-perfect steamed rice. Harikawa is open Monday to Saturday, 12 to 2 p.m. for lunch, and later in the evening for dinner until 10 p.m. Closed Sundays. [EaterWire]
