Stan's Donuts (literally next door) and is known for its Japanese yakitori. I tried to go with a friend last year for lunch but we couldn't meet until noon and when I called Sumiya to reserve a table, I was told they only accepted reservations for seating between 11:30-12. Huh? If I could get there that early, I don't think I would need a reservation. The guy explained they're "too busy" to take reservations, meaning they didn't want to reserve a table, risk a no-show and have that table go unoccupied while they had a line out the door. Okay, I get it. As someone who always shows up for every reservation I make, I didn't think that was a super-friendly customer-service approach but..shrug. Their restaurant, their rules. So I gave up on Sumiya for lunch.
