Takamatsu Reopens Thursday

Posted By on Tue, Aug 2, 2011 at 12:00 PM

Takamatsu at 5532 E. Speedway Blvd. reopens Thursday, wrapping up a lengthy recovery from a fire that shuttered the restaurant more than a year ago.

Owner Peter Koga sent out a press release this week announcing the opening and detailing the improvements made to the eatery during the reconstruction.

Koga says he’s added a cocktail lounge and increased the size of the sushi bar. More big-screen televisions have also been added, as well as additional “Japanese flair” throughout.

The restaurant will now feature an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet for $9.95 and will serve sushi all day long. A happy hour daily from 3 to 6 p.m. will feature items from the dinner menu done tapas-style and, of course, specials on drinks.

Few restaurant closings have stirred as much emotion amongst Tucson diners as this one; I’ve received numerous inquiries as to when they would reopen. I’ve also spoken to Koga on several occasions during the recovery, and he’s gone to some extreme lengths to get the doors back open.

So welcome back Takamatsu. Tucson has certainly missed you.
