| Food and Drink Board|| Kamado's Sushi on Bennington - Closed? - Unobtanium on 5/10/13 at 3:40 pm|
Was told by the manager they would be closed for "remodeling". Passed by today and the building is up for sale.
Anyone know if one of their sushi chef - Henry - landed somewhere else in Baton Rouge? He makes good rolls and is a nice guy.
Thanks to the F&DB....

Any of you with factory backup/rear view cameras:

- is their field of view good enough for trailer hook-up?
I'm thinking about installing a retrofit kit on my Silverado. Thanks for the info....

Anyone go there while they were open?...
