It looks like a new sushi spot is on its way to Boston, and it appears to be opening in the space where a beloved neighborhood bar used to be.
According to a tweet and an Instagram post from Drew Starr, Love Art Sushi is planning to open on Haviland Street (near where Boston's Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods meet), moving into the former T.C.'s Lounge space. Very little is currently known about the upcoming spot, though based on an earlier UConn Today article, it does appear to have a connection to a place in Storrs, CT, that opened a few years ago as Haru Aki Cafe and is now called H.A. Cafe; a Bizapedia page lists the manager and registered agent of record of Love Art Sushi as Jessica Chiep and Ronald Liu, respectively, and Haru Aki Cafe was opened by Jessica Chiep, Ronald Liu, and Thomas Wang.
TC's Lounge had been a neighborhood fixture for more than 40 years until being hit by a fire in March of 2012 and announcing its permanent closure later that year.
The address for the upcoming Love Art Sushi (and the former TC's Lounge) is 1 Haviland Street, Boston, MA, 02115.
