SG brings to our attention that sushi restaurant Little Buddha has recently signed (ed note: it’s buried in that article but it is in there) on at 455 Mass Ave. Little Buddha is based at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas and is affiliated with Buddha Bar NYC and Buddha Bar Paris. Back in June the rumor was Lawry’s Prime Rib.
Reactions from the peanut gallery? Many previously expressed interest in seeing a “Lauriol Plaza East” here. But of course it takes two to tango and things don’t work that way. I’m satisfied with the choice as long as Little Buddha make good use of the windows and patio.
UPDATE (12/15/2008 4:30P): More Little Buddha
