Now they open.
Genkai, the one consistently pretty-good sushi restaurant in Dana Point, shut down a couple months ago after a fire. Now, though... well, the sign above says it all.

I went there last night, expecting to see some sort of renovation or interior overhaul. But nope: It's the same wood-paneled foyer and wave-patterned bar backdrop as ever. The only noticeable change were the screens in the dining room, which, if memory serves, used to be... different. I can't say I'm sure how they were different, though. Maybe they were rice paper?

nd the fish? Still fresh. All is right in Dana Point now that you don't have to brave the fratty crowd, bizarre serving practices and hit-or-miss fare of Mahe for sushi.
