A reader reports:

“The boards came down yesterday at Umaya. Maybe three years later we are finally getting close? It looks like their website is finally up and updated and accepting reservations starting 25-April

Their website says:

“Izakaya restaurants orginiated in the Edo era (17th – 19th centuries) as Sake gained popularity. While liquor shops would sell Sake, nearby shops saw the need for simple dishes to accompany these thirsty guests. Izakaya restaurants became the go-to casual place for after-work drinking; perpetuated by delicious small plates. Today, Izakaya is known as a drinking establishment that tailors their food to accompany the drinks.”
