Urban Fish out of water, becoming Japanese spot
October 30, 2017
Urban Fish took its last gasp months ago, and it appears a Japanese restaurant is set to breathe new life into the space.
Signs have gone up outside 2193 Mission near 18th Street, indicating that the tiny restaurant space could be soon home to a restaurant called Tawara that offers “sake dining,” which I can only assume is Japanese food with a substantial sake menu. Based on a peek in the window last night, it seems as though the new owners still have a way to go on the restaurant’s interior.
Urban Fish, which was Weird Fish under previous ownership and known for its vegan and pescatarian options, closed roughly four months ago. An attempt to reach Urban Fish’s owner in August was unsuccessful, but an employee at his neighboring restaurant, L’Emigrante, said the other restaurant had sold.
