We’re as pumped as anyone to bathe our faces in the tonkotsu broth at Osaka Ramen. Psyched to gobble down roll after roll from the conveyor belt at Sushi-Rama. Giddy at the prospect of The Market, which will open in RiNo’s H.H. Tammen Building next summer to house more than a dozen vendors — including a fishmonger, salumaio, and chocolatier. And beyond thrilled for Jeff Osaka, the visionary behind all these projects. But that doesn’t mean we’re A-OK with his decision to shutter the contemporary destination that simultaneously made him a star and helped put the Ballpark neighborhood on the map. We’ll miss his monthly changing prix fixe menus even as we’re hoovering up his noodles and nigiri, because he’s spoiled us like that.

What we miss in a word: "Poppycock!" ("Bubu arare!" just doesn’t have the same ring.) Consider copious tears shed for the kangaroo tartare, too.
