Dining News: Now Closed - Oshima Sushi/Coyote Tap House/Big Bowl Noodles
April 30, 2015
Oshima Sushi (which has also been known as Coyote Tap House and Big Bowl Noodle) at 14th & H is closed.
Their phone line was disconnected on Thursday when I called, and their Web site lists only their Natomas location but shows no sign of their downtown location. Their last Facebook post was in January.
The last Yelp review was dated on March 29, with "Jessica P." writing:
Horrific! No receipt even offered with bar tab! Even when requested. My glass of wine was served 1/3 full for $7. And a plastic cup of coors light was also $7! Really? Also the food was quoted to be "well over an hour wait". Rude incompetent service.
I've also had less than stellar experiences in the Downtown location, but I have found the food and service at their Natomas location to be much better (though it's been a few years since I've visited either location).
In December 2013, Coyote Tap House was in the news, asking for the city to change the terms on their lease. At the time, the restaurant's rent was approximately $10,500 per month.
The restaurant replaced Brew It Up in Nov. 2012. The owner of Brew It Up has since moved on to Yolo Brewing Company.
Oshima Sushi was located at 801 14th St.

Old Soul at the Weatherstone bans smoking - Unlike other major coffee players in town, Old Soul Co. has been putting more and more effort into its food program. With that in mind, Old Soul at the Weatherstone (812 21st Street) announced today that it will ban smoking at that particular cafe starting May 1. The Weatherstone boasts a lovely, idyllic patio, where hip patrons often chain smoke with their black coffee and Russian literature. Apparently, other patrons have been complaining about it for years. Janelle Bitker in Sac News & Review.
Kathmandu Kitchen: The accidental curry tourist - Kathmandu’s laal maas is a rather unique curry that would almost seem like a riff on Italian food if not for the spices. Chunks of lamb are braised in a shocking red chili sauce. Shouts of numerous spices such as black cardamom, coriander and cumin all beckoned for attention, yet it was the sweet and spicy kashmiri chili’s bold flavor that rose above the din...Kathmandu Kitchen is an excellent stop to make if you happen to be in Davis. The food is solid and you’ll find yourself smiling by the end of the meal. Garrett McCord in Sac News & Review.
