We’ve been watching construction going on at the former Elephant Bar at 1050 E. Harriman Place in San Bernardino and had figured out it was going to be Jiro’s Japanese Restaurant, but then San Bernardino Sun reporter Ryan Hagen came along and filled in the blanks for us.
The new restaurant is expected to open in May.
We’re thinking it should do well, since there hasn’t been a Japanese restaurant in the Hospitality Lane area since Yamazato of Japan closed in December 2008.
And, no, we’re not counting Seattle’s Best Teriyaki.
Read Ryan’s article here.
The new place — which had its grand opening on Saturday — looks amazing!
It’s truly a family affair, as the owners’ niece, who operates designstiles, created the look.
Participants will sample 14 different dishes, including four different pizzas. Cost is $42 per person, which includes tax, tip and a non-alcoholic beverage.
