What has been the holdup for not opening sooner?

We like the sushi at the Perry Hall location.

That's a good question Bill. What are the issues that have led to the restaurant not opening? You kind of left us hanging.

Since I live in Bel Air, I've been walking past that place for over two years. I hope the service is faster than the opening. I'm not getting any younger. Seriously, I do look forward to it's opening, especially since Hong Kong closed up.
