Their signature menu item was the “Highball,” a mix of whiskey and carbonated water, and the restaurant was also known as the “Highball Mecca.”
For many years, Mr. Tsuyuguchi and his wife, Asako, continued to operate the store, but last year, it was sadly brought to an end after 64 years of history.
