Toki Underground Is Closed Tonight, Friends Of Thang Le Gather at BlackByrd
Popular H Street ramen house Toki Underground is closed tonight. Funeral services for chef Thang Le, who passed away earlier this week at age 31, took place Friday and owner Erik Bruner-Yang says the proceedings were tough on his staff. (Bruner-Yang has posted some words of remembrance on the restaurant's website here.) Friends are gathering for a public memorial at BlackByrd this evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Again, Y&H would like to express his condolences to the family and whole Toki crew.
