Everyday Sushi Bar (formerly Samurai Sushi Bar, formerly Wonder Sushi Land)
4572 W 10th Ave
What’s in a name?
This place became known as Samurai Sushi Bar back in the late-fall, complete with a new exterior signage and menu. My visit to it was based on when it was known as this.
But a few weeks later the same restaurant was re-branded as Everyday Sushi Bar.
Three names within a month, not a good omen I’d say.
The sudden swap made me wonder, was it a copyright issue? After all, this place is trading on that name already in the GVA. I guess you can’t get anymore generic than dumping “everyday” into your title. So perhaps they can avoid any more lawsuits…
Regardless, when I asked the new owners of the then-Samurai Sushi Bar, how they came to get the keys to the palace, she mentioned they bought out the previous proprietors. I’d noticed not much had changed inside the place, though the menu had been revamped, and heavy on the maki (rolls). As she asked if I’d been here before (the previous place), I replied yes and she emphatically told me I’d like the new version better. We’ll see…
