Thanks to a reader for sending the good news about Ogawa (from the owners of the incredibly awesome Sushi Capitol on Capitol Hill) is finally, for real, seriously opening in the former Pines of Florence space.
In October I begged Ogawa to open up. My prayers have finally been answered according to a worker on the scene – he says Ogawa, Traditional Japanese Sushi and Washoku Sushi, should be good to go on Monday!
