In the comments section of the recent posting on Kushi readers wondered aloud about competition between Kushi and Buddha Bar. I agreed with Nick’s point that the menus and atmospheres of these two venues could be different enough to prevent much cannibalization of business. Buddha Bar’s reputation is that of a dressy, ultra-trendy weekend nightspot which I don’t think Kushi plans to compete head on with.
For discussion today what are thoughts on Kushi versus Momiji (505 H St)? How similar will they be? Is the impending conversion of the Lee Loo space (521 G St) to Absolute Thai a wise choice so close to Kanlaya and Royal Thai?
