The question is, what's coming next?

The Palms neighborhood is poised to lose a longtime seafood haunt, as Sushi Central closes its doors on July 31.

The beloved sushi shop made it nearly to the decade mark before moving on, notifying customers in a post on their Facebook page. In the meaningful message, chef Phillip Yi and the team at Sushi Central thank their customers profusely for helping them to become such a neighborhood landmark, saying:

You came, ate, supported, introduced other people to our restaurant and kept us in business for this long and for that we are indebted to you. We owe you for everything you have helped us become.

The post also mentions the primary reason for the shutdown: leasing issues.

Apparently Sushi Central’s longtime landowners got a better offer for the prime Palms real estate on Overland, and decided to jump at the chance to make more money. And while nothing concrete has been mentioned about the sneaky new concept going in, back-channel rumblings say it could be a big name operator with ties to the area.

Got more to share or just want to let off some steam at the upcoming shutter? Hit the comments.
