Maitland sushi spot RanGetsu to close Saturday, March 5


  • Aldrin Capulong
RanGetsu, the Japanese restaurant and sushi lounge that relocated to Maitland from the I-Drive area in 2011, is closing its doors in just a little over a week.

In our review of the rebranded restaurant, we said, "Stepping into the new RanGetsu is like stepping into a sexy Ginza supper club – everything exudes swank."

Early plans to try for a nightclub clientele after 10 p.m. fell through. They stuck it out in Maitland with a dedicated lunch and happy-hour crowd, but apparently that wasn't enough. From their Facebook page: 
Attention friends and family of RanGetsu. We are sad to announce that Saturday, March 5 will be our last day serving the Orlando community. We thank you for the years of support and invite everyone in for one last taste of Japan. Our original location in Tokyo, Japan will remain open for business.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
