As I was on my way to the final Auntie Anne’s Happy Hour at Ontario Mills today, I noticed a banner hanging outside the center’s outlying Tokyo Tokyo Japanese restaurant.
The longtime restaurant (I believe it’s been there nearly as long as the Mills itself) is under new management.
Along with that comes a name change: Shin Bashi Japanese Cuisine.
It’s associated with a Pomona restaurant of the same name.
Shin Bashi is at 990 Ontario Mills Drive, Suite H.

The funds will be used to support the group’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
