Momoyama (1637 Clarkson Road, Chesterfield; 636-536-7778) reopened yesterday, September 28, after a brief, confusing hiatus.

The sushi restaurant first announced on Facebook that it was closing for good but might reopen in a new location next year. When Gut Check called to confirm the news, however, an employee contradicted this, telling me that it was closed only for renovations.

Here's what I've learned: Momoyama is now under the ownership of Jin Bae, who is also the sushi chef. Yoshio Aoki -- a.k.a. Yoshi, a.k.a. Mr. Sushi -- who'd returned earlier this year to the restaurant that he'd founded (as Yoshi's), is no longer involved.
