It looks like a new restaurant is coming to one of the hottest parts of Somerville--though it also appears that the city might not be fully aware of it yet.
Eater Boston is reporting that Yuki Shabu - Sushi has a sign up on Bow Street in Union Square in the space where Union Square Donuts had been until moving a couple of storefronts away. The article also says that a phone call placed to the office of the city clerk indicated that the Somerville Licensing Commission's secretary does not have anything in her records showing that this restaurant has applied for a license to operate within the space. EB does say that the Somerville Inspectional Services Division shows that a construction company was given the green light to renovate the space last fall, however.
A subsequent update from Eater Boston mentions that a company called Yuki LLC was set up last May (with this information coming from public records from the Massachusetts Corporations Division) and that the manager listed is also a person behind the Thai restaurant Sweet Ginger, which is on Bow Street as well.
The address for Yuki Shabu - Sushi is 16 Bow Street, Somerville, MA, 02143.
