A Twitter pal shared the unfortunate news that longtime sushi chef Toshi (Toshihiro Sasaki) of MURASAKI SUSHI has sadly passed away, and the restaurant has temporarily closed. There are some very sweet missives to Toshi posted on Yelp (for a change). Condolences to his family and friends (and many fans). The page on Yelp says the restaurant will reopen on September 1st, but ABC license activity points to a new name and ownership. 211 Clement St. at 3rd Ave.
