The retail space at 158 Court Street has been empty for a while now.
Long, long ago, it was the home of 'Inaka', one of the area's first Japanese restaurants. Believe me, twenty-two or so years ago, it was a big deal when it opened its doors and one could satisfy a craving for sushi without leaving the neighborhood.
After the original owner sold the business, it briefly became 'Oishi Oochi', but by then, there were other sushi restaurants on Court and Smith Streets to compete with.
More recently, it was the "Little Bistro."
Today, as I was walking by, I noticed that it will soon become a dentist office. Steve Wong, D.D.S., will be moving his office here from Henry Street.
(Oh, and per another flier in the window, you can win a free whitening kit, call for details)
