Don't worry your pretty little head -- in a few months, we won't need to ponder such an outrageous notion.

That's because Moira Sushi Bar & Kitchen is coming to the ground level of Urban Form Development's new condos at 215 E. McKinley -- you know, the pointy-roofed brick building just a stone's throw south of The Roosevelt.

Chef-owner Tony Van, who's worked at a variety of restaurants in northern Arizona, and co-owner Linda Nguyen plan to open in July.
