The news that Nana San is the reincarnation of the original Ango Tei-the much-beloved local sushi spot where an hour wait was as much a constant as the freshness of the fish-brought jubilation from fans. Ango Tei was sold to new owners two years ago, but in the 25 years it was in business, Goro Sakurai, the owner's stepson, was also being trained there and groomed to master the sushi arts. Nana San is the culmination of that training. And here, with his wife Judy, Sakurai seems ready to cultivate fans for his own quarter-century run.
