Regrettably, Josh's closes this coming Sunday. This was one of our great small and unique restaurants that just couldn't last. This represents a big loss for customers down @ Union Square. Good luck to Josh-one fine chef. 🍽

Delicious food and cheerful staff with a reasonable price. Love the fish tacos. When the weather is nice the patio seating in the square area is a nice place to enjoy a meal.
