IT WAS SHIROI HANA FISH MARKET, SUSHI BAR AND RESTAURANT
when I took this photo in the mid-1980s. I think it offered New Orleans cuisine when it was called Café Beignet. I’m not sure what name it went by when I went in for fish and chips. As of a few weeks ago, the property, at the southeast corner of Emerald Street and Mission Boulevard, was a freshly painted parking lot.
