Moveable Feast

When I heard the term ‘conveyor belt sushi’ I admit I was concerned. My fears turned out to be unfounded. Yo! Sushi does indeed serve a great many sushi and sashimi options on a conveyor belt that playfully winds throughout the brightly colored and stylishly decorated interior. But the fish at this London-based chain’s new Westfield Garden State Plaza location was so fresh and expertly prepared I had a hard time believing Editor in Chief Rita Guarna and I weren’t in a Japanese waterfront restaurant. The dishes are color-coded by price and are timestamped when they are made, ensuring freshness. If you prefer to order sushi or hot plates off the menu, just press a red button before you and a helpful staff member will appear. We found they were willing to nudge us out of our comfort zones or suit our most familiar tastes, as we preferred. I suggest the former, as the chefs are quite adventurous in their flavor profiles and clever in their presentation. Whether you’re a sushi novice or a fugu-braving veteran, Yo! Sushi is sensational!

Yo! Sushi, 1 Westfield Garden State Plaza, Paramus, 201.389.8137; yosushiusa.com
(Note: Though the mall is closed on Sundays, the restaurant is open that day, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
