Fishy Farewell 

Side Dishes: Burlington's oldest Japanese restaurant closes

Restaurateurs looking for a coveted Church Street space, be advised: The owners of Sakura of Japan, which runs Sakura Bana Japanese Restaurant, have decided not to renew the restaurant’s lease when it expires this winter. That’s according to chef-proprietor Ron Takahashi, who isn’t yet certain when Burlington’s oldest sushi spot will close for good, but guesses it will be in January or February.

To prepare for the closure, the menu at Sakura has been streamlined, offering the same dishes at lunch and dinner, with smaller portions and prices at the earlier meal. Sushido in Williston, also owned by Sakura of Japan, will remain open, serving ultra-fresh rolls and home-style cooked meals.
