Sushi in the works for former Polonia space

[EVG file photo]

We're curious about what will take the place of the dearly departed Polonia, the Polish diner that closed in December on First Avenue near East Seventh Street. We had heard rumors about a big-name suitor...

The address is on the docket for the October CB3/SLA committee meeting. According to documents on file with CB3, the space will become a Japanese restaurant called Sushi Dojo. There's not much information on the CB3 website. Proposed hours are Sunday-Monday from 5 p.m.-1 a.m.

The CB3 documents lists a "David Bouhadona" as an applicant ... maybe that's a typo, and that should be David Bouhadana, the onetime executive chef of the former Sushi Uo on Rivington Street.

i read the interview and wow, the guy is super pretentious in a way that only a 23 year old can be. Maybe he has matured since then but he should probably keep his mouth shut and let the food do the talking. Otherwise he is only going to drive people away.

He's the same guy that wanted to open on E 3RD between A and B but didn't get the liquor license.
He seems like a nice guy, definitely a bit pretentious maybe though. They want something very high end, which may be good or bad, but it seems they want a calm crowd.

That's an impressive admission.
