Chef Akira's New Azay Status?

Anyone have an update on Chef Akira’s new place Azay in Little Tokyo?
It was supposed to have opened in late March.

Thanks!

SAM

Are you related to @secretasianman?

No, I’m related to this guy since 2008.

interesting. how many SAM’s have been to cleveland OH? i grew up in lakewood. was at bo loong last august for my dad’s 95th birthday.

That’s fantastic, Barry!
My grandmother lived on Edgewater Drive!

Last month we were at Wonton Gourmet and BBQ, on Payne, which I think is pretty close to Bo Loong!

Isn’t that amazing?

So does anyone actually know about the restaurant??

I am very tempted to make a new account as SecretAznMan just to join in this momentous occasion of the meeting of Secret Asian Mans.

Since I’ll be the Secret Azn Man I’ll review Vietnamese Coffeeshops, late night cafes, and tattoo parlors

That sounds excellent. We will have to work out the details of your costume! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

it’s like the line from richard pryor’s monologue about shooting the movie at arizona state penitentiary where the inmates are 95% black": “… why is that strange? because there are no black people in arizona!”

Welcome to FTC! Thanks for the heads up. Dammit, I already have a resy for dinner in OC that day. =/

I’ve been following this exchange with interest. You see, I’m also a Secret Asian Man with ties to Lakewood. My spouse grew up near Lewis and Madison.
