Ginger, the unique sushi restaurant at 109 First Ave. near East Seventh Street, closed earlier this month, as we first reported.
As a Ginger regular told us, the owners decided to sell the business for family reasons. (In other words, a rent hike wasn't the culprit here.)
The new venture is called Sen Ya. There's now a note on the rolldown gate pointing to a mid- or late-April opening...
There isn't much information just yet on the Sen Ya Facebook page:
Sen Ya is committed to provide the highest standards of Japanese Food Dining. We prepare our meals freshly and with the finest ingredients of the season.
