Back in 2012, permitting glitches delayed the opening of Aoba Sushi at 1520 Blake Street, in the former home of Organixx (and, for two decades before that, the Egg Shell) — and in the meantime, LoDo was flooded with plans for other sushi spots, including Hapa Sushi next door at 1514 Blake Street and Blue Sushi Sake Grill, a block away at 1610 16th Street (in old home of Dixons, which it shares with Lucky Pie).
Since then, of course, LoDo's restaurant scene has only gotten more crowded.
