Japanese in Wolfeboro?
 
The West Lake sign is down. The lights are out.

As far as I'm concerned, once Su and Ling were gone, it was never very good.

However - there's a sign up saying that it is a new Japanese restaurant, seemingly not open yet. Does anyone have the inside scoop?

Saka Japanese Restaurant
 
Thanks for the heads-up. Saka Japanese Restaurant appears to be the restaurant taking West Lake's place. The only Google results I could find were business registrations and a blurb indicating that there was a post about Saka on a “What's Happening in Wolfeboro” Facebook that I couldn't fully access because Facebook doesn't play nice with my iPad and I'm not a Facebook member (which shouldn't be necessary to view posts & comments on “public” pages, but whatever) — maybe someone else on the Forum will have better luck.

I hope it's a winner. My husband & I would love for a good Japanese restaurant to open in Wolfeboro.

That's a bit like complaining about American food as kale, spinach, and mushrooms.

But to your question--YES! Just last night--it was wrapped around some wonderful salmon.

One weakness with the lake restaurant scene is that so many have basically identical menus. A Japanese addition would be terrific.

Google indicates that "Wen Lin" is registered agent for a corp. that operates Kume Sushi and Steakhouse in Seabrook, which is well-reviewed in yelp.

Looks like this won't be a rookie start-up, which bodes well.

Some Kale and all Spinach are high in oxalates—and should be shunned by those fearful of kidney stones. :eek: Mushrooms supply necessary Selenium to one's diet.

When the West Lake restaurant started under new management (2018?), a Japanese bar was sited in the dining area, and was busy preparing take-out orders.

Wen, the gentleman who is opening Saka in Wolfeboro also has a restaurant in Epping called Kume. I have eaten there a couple of times and found the food to be both tasty and fresh. I believe that Saka will be his fourth or fifth restaurant here in New England. Obviously they have a formula that seems to work. Hopefully it works well in Wolfeboro. I've heard they're just waiting for their liquor license and then they will open up here.
