One of the area's biggest names in sushi is going to be closing one of its locations.
According to a source, Oishii Sushi Bar in Chestnut Hill is shutting down, with Henry Santoro of WGBH confirming this for us this morning. The website for the dining spot gives further confirmation, saying that "On Sept. 23rd, After 20 years of operation at the Hammond Street, and with the end of our lease, we will hold our last dinner service at the 612 Hammond Street location. We would like to thank our Chestnut Hill Team who have made a significant contribution to its success over the years." The note goes on to say that many of the workers at the Chestnut Hill eatery will move to their other locations in Boston's South End and Sudbury.
The Chestnut Hill location of Oishii first opened in 1998, offering maki, sushi, and sashimi, along with a variety of appetizers and entrees.
The address for this soon-to-close sushi spot in Chestnut Hill is: Oishii Sushi Bar, 612 Hammond Street, Chestnut Hill, MA, 02467. The website for Oishii can be found at http://www.oishiiboston.com/
