So just when is that restaurant going to be finished?

Recently, there was a question/answer in the "Ask Us Anything" part of the OC Register, since I had wondered about this topic myself, I thought I'd post it here.

The question was: When will the eyesore on the northwest corner of Warner Ave & Magnolia St. be cleaned up? The eyesore in mention is the old Asian restaurant Doson. It has been vacant for several years now.
Answer they provided: The site of the old Asian restaurant will be transformed into a new Asian restaurant. The building at 8901 Waner Ave in HB that was formerly the Doson Beach restaurant is the future site of the Seven Sushi Lounge, according to property manager Kathy Buchoz of Bridgecreek Realty Investment Corp. The road to the restaurant has been a long one, Buchoz said. the family that owns the business has had some personal setbacks since they bought the building about two years ago and has been plagued with problems with the contractors, she said.
Still, Buchoz said that there has been a lot of work done ion the inside of the building and the exterior will match the adjoining buildings when completed. "A lot of it is cosmetic now," Buchoz said, adding that the restaurant could open in as little as two to three months.

I've been watching this building just sit there for a very long time. It will be a relief to see it finally done, but I won't hold my breath for the 2 to 3 month range!!
