Reader Derek sent us the sad news that a local sushi restaurant, Balboa Sushi House (402 Balboa) has closed its doors after one of the owners passed away.
A note on the door explains the closure to customers:
- Dear beloved customers,
James, my father who has run Balboa Sushi House for last 19 years, has passed away on March 10, 2016. As you may [be] aware, James’ wife cannot open this restaurant without him.
I that you, all of the customers are like family to my father and mother. I would like to thank you for your love to my parents and the restaurant. We will be closed.
“Me and my folks had enjoyed Annie and her husband James company and cooking numerous times so when I passed by and saw this note it really hit close, ” Derek told us.
“Annie would always greet everyone with her warm smile and laugh while James would whip up tasty meals in the kitchen. Eating there felt as though you were going home for the holidays with family.”
Our condolences to Annie and her family.
