A friend & I went last night - 5:30 on a Friday and the place was empty, maybe a few people at the bar. Two girls came in just ahead of us and took the 2-person table in the bar area, which is the only area where you can have happy hour prices. We were told that in order to enjoy the happy hour menu, which we have done for years, we would have to sit at the bar because the 4-seating tables in this empty restaurant were reserved for any larger group which might come in at that early hour. Otherwise, we could sit in the empty restaurant and order full meals, no discounts. But we have always sat at the 4-seat tables with no 4-person minimum if they were available, first come first serve and in an empty restaurant at an early hour, there was nobody to serve.. So, we went up the street to Bad Sushi where happy hour is at any table in the restaurant and the food was much, much better, the prices were nicer and the people were charming. We saw that en was still empty when we walked by at the end of our Bad Sushi meal. Goodbye hostess with an attitude! Sorry En, but your hostess shouldn't turn away business. You've lost a long-time customer.
