Rumor Mill

Did Raw Pull Out of the Piazza?

The rumor mill is humming this morning with reports that Raw, Tony Rim’s sushi and sake spot that opened at the Piazza last July, closed abruptly following New Year’s revelry. A tipster emailed Grub a photo of a box truck parked behind the restaurant being loaded with kitchen gear last night. If true, the closing comes as quite a blow for the Piazza. Raw’s location there is the same as where Shola Olunloyo’s much hyped Speck was stillborn. This morning Foobooz posted that a source at the restaurant alluded to it closing for the winter. As of this posting, owner Rim was not available for comment. [Foobooz]
