Sushi Sasa owner planning new sushi spots

The owner of Sushi Sasa in LoHi will open a new restaurant in southeast Denver with a focus on affordability and delivery.

BusinessDen first reported Monday that chef Wayne Conwell is planning to open a new restaurant called Tai Japanese Hawaiian within the Happy Canyon Shopping Center in the 4900 block of of East Hampden Avenue. According to the business news website, the new restaurant will focus on offering sushi rolls and poke bowls at a lower price than at Sushi Sasa.

The small restaurant will consist of a large sushi bar and just a couple of two-tops and fit 20 diners. Tai Japanese Hawaiian will also be focused on efficiency, with diners able to order from their phones and kiosks as well as pen and paper. There will also be a cubby system that allows delivery drivers and those picking up food to-go to find their orders more quickly.

BusinessDen also reported that Conwell plans to open a second Sushi Sasa location he is dubbing Sasa on the Hill at 217 S. Holly St. in the Hilltop neighborhood. [BusinessDen]

The Pioneer Inn in Nederland closes, for now

The Pioneer Inn in Nederland, which is regarded as one of Colorado’s classic mountain town bars, has closed—at least for now.

In a wide-ranging story examining many problems that have recently befallen Nederland, the Boulder Daily Camera reported that the bar currently bears a “closed until further notice” sign. The Camera also reported that the bar’s liquor license expired on October 2 and that it owed $26,416.63 in taxes to the state.

However, the bar could soon reopen. Netherland Town Clerk Miranda Fisher also told the Daily Camera that the bar is pending a possible transfer of ownership.” [Boulder Daily Camera]
