We had practically given up on Lovely Day opening back up again after their fire incident last year. Several days ago, we finally came across news of its reopening on the blogsphere. Funny, there really must have not been that much damage (as Eater suggests) because everything was in place just as it was before. The patrons, the slow service, the menu - everything. Apparently they do have a new ceiling. The light fixtures seemed to have some brighter light bulbs. Curious. Regardless, we're glad to be able to have the Japanese fried chicken lunch special again.
