Oh noes! Bwog tipster Rachael McMillan just let us know, horrified, that Tomo is going to close — permanently — next Sunday. A quick call to the hostess on duty revealed that their lease is up, and so is rent. The rent increase is “like, a lot” and they will not be able to continue doing business.

After Swish closed a month ago, they recommended that sushi seekers go to Tomo to fulfill their rolled fish cravings.Just recently, they changed their sign to indicate that they would be reopening with an all-new Japanese menu. Perhaps they knew before the rest of us.

If Swish doesn’t reopen soon, Morningside will be struck with a sushi shortage. Destruction and famine is likely to follow; Bwog will keep you posted.
