Hiroshi’s opens to serve Japanese food at 15th and Beacon

December 17th, 2013 at 12:38 am | 7 Comments | Posted by Wendi Dunlap

A new restaurant has opened at 15th and Beacon, in part of the building that was once the Beacon Hill Library. Hiroshi’s opened yesterday with a sign in the window promising “Japanese Food, Take Out, Deli, Catering,” not to mention a big blue neon sign that says “Sushi.” We haven’t been able to try it out yet and probably won’t be able to for a few days, so if you check it out, tell us what you think!

Neighbor gaspari5 writes to the Beacon Hill mailing list:

Join some hearty souls as they prep and build the timber foundation for the new greenhouse at the great renovated demonstration garden at El Centro. With many hands working together we’ll be out of the cold sooner.

Better cold and sunny than rain and wind.

That’s this Saturday, December 7. El Centro de la Raza is located at 2524 16th Ave S,
