Division Street in Wicker Park continues its changes — and they're not all happy ones. After 15 years in business on the strip, Aug. 2 will be the last day for Bob San Restaurant. The sushi restaurant's management made the closing announcement on Tuesday via Facebook, also revealing that they're making way "for a new business."

It's unclear what will replace the restaurant. Bob San expanded next door into the former Leo's Lunchroom space in 2008 and began offering karaoke in a larger lounge area. While Bob San is closing, their sister restaurant in River North, Sushi Naniwa, will stay in business and start delivering to Wicker Park.

Management wasn't immediately available for comment. Check back for updates, and in the meantime: Domo arigato, Bob San.
