One of SF's oldest Japanese restaurants helps relief efforts


All four Ebisu locations will donate some of the proceeds from their lunch and dinner servings. The money will go to disaster relief.

Restaurant owners and staff have been hearing from or trying to reach family and friends in Japan. All are anxious to assist in any way they can. Eric Fujii is the owners' son.

"We're going to collectively take 10 percent out of all four restaurants and then donate that to disaster relief [for] two weeks," said Fujii.

They hope to raise $20,000. Ebisu has been in business for nearly 30 years in San Francisco. It has two restaurants in the Sunset District, one Downtown, and another at San Francisco International Airport.
