Welcome to The Shutter. Know a restaurant that has served its last? Do let us know.

La Jolla's Toshi-San Sushi and Shabu Shabu, whose namesake itamae was the first of Sushi Ota's highly-skilled disciples to branch out and open his own restaurant, closed its doors last week. A posted sign thanked customers for their support but made no mention of where Toshi-San will land, though it's likely that he'll pop up behind another local sushi bar soon.
Two newer offerings from Ota-trained chefs, Hane Sushi in Banker's Hill and Little Italy's Shino Sushi, both helmed by the Nakamura brothers, are still going strong.
