1865 Post in J-Town: From Yelp-Fraudulent “Kabuki Kitchen” to “Sundance Kitchen” to Nothing in a Few Short Years

First, it was all like this, the Kabuki Kitchen at 1865 Post near Fillmore, where a little five-star Yelp Fraud didn’t have the intended effect:

So then it was all like this, with a new name and menu for Bob Redford’s joint right next to the Sundance Kabuki movie theatre:

But now it’s all like this, all closed up:

Oh well.

Hey, maybe if Japantown hadn’t chased away so many tenants all these years there’d be a critical mass of foot traffic?

Maybe. Storefronts on Post what were empty in 2005 are still empty in 2011.

The whole place looks like a ghost town (a cold, 1960′s-style 100% cement ghost town) at night, pretty much. (Concrete and clay and general decay…)

Oh well.

    The area is hardly a ghost town. Seriously, there are so many movie goers each night. Anyway, it was so much better when pasta pomadora was in that spot. Ya, I know, a chain, but still better.
