You’re tired of coming up with ideas for dinner. The kids are bored with the same line-up of meals, and pizza just won’t do. What’s a family to do? Just roll with it.
ROLL with it. See what I did there? That was my suave segue into sushi talk.
If you are a sushi lover, then you are in luck. There’s a variety of places to choose from in the immediate area. Here’s a list of some of them :
Akai Japanese Sushi Lounge is a new restaurant in Westfield is located at 102-108 E. Broad Street in the space formerly occupied by Wild Greens. This is the second location for the owner following the success of Akai in Englewood, NJ. This exciting modern restaurant serves sushi in a nightclub style atmosphere. Since they have a liquor license, you can enjoy fresh, imaginative sushi along with a martini! www.akailounge.com
The newly renovated Fuji, http://westfieldfuji.com/ ,at 340 South Avenue East in Westfield, sports a beautiful interior with comfortable, spacious seating for more than 100 people. This place is BYOB, which is very convenient, since Shop Rite Liquors is right across the street.
Nagoya http://nagoyawestfield.com/ at 278 North Avenue East in Westfield, is also BYOB, (there is a liquor store right next door), is also a popular favorite, and offers a great variety of unique rolls to keep customers coming back.
At Fujiyama Mama, http://www.kpsearch.com/df/fujiyama/all.asp ,at 341 South Avenue East in Westfield, customers who choose not to order from the extensive sushi menu can get their food prepared and cooked on the hotplate surface at the table, so it is hot and fresh, and the entertainment value is not to be underrated.
Asian Fusion, http://www.asianfusionnj.com/ ,at 114 Quimby Street in Westfield, offers both Japanese and Chinese fare, with a full sushi menu. So there’s a little something for everyone’s tastes.
Avenue East, http://www.ave-east.com/ , at 16 North Union Avenue, also offers Both Chinese and Japanese, as well as a tempting sushi menu. It also offers guests a beautiful, contemporary, comfortable atmosphere right in the heart of the Cranford shopping district.
Sushi Time 898, at 12 South Avenue West (in the Dollar General strip mall), is cozy and inviting, and quite reasonably priced.
Mizu Sushi, http://mizusushinj.com/menu.html , at 103 North Union Avenue in Cranford, is BYOB, and has virtually every roll you can think of.
Arashi Sushi, http://www.arashisushicranford.com/, at 101 North Avenue West in Cranford, is another Chinese/Japanese restaurant, and, again, roll-ific!
Most of these places also offer take-out and delivery, and some also offer buffets. You may want to “roll” from one to the other to try each one out and find your favorite!
