Sushi near New Brunswick, NJ?
Hey Tristate hounds! I hope you can help me out.
A friend (in Brooklyn) and I (in Philadelphia) are meeting roughly in the middle in New Brunswick tomorrow night. I haven't had sushi in a while and it seems to be the only thing he eats, so...
I found a thread http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/256892 that mentioned Sunny Garden in Princeton http://www.sunnygarden.net but the only other sushi/Jersey mention I saw was from 2001, so I figured I better ask and get more current information.
First of all, there are no good sushi places in NB. There's Edo's on Easton Ave., which is ok, especially if you're looking to stick around there afterwards. If you're willing to drive a bit, there's a great sushi place in Somerville called Shumi Restaurant. Very unassuming place on a side road off of Main Street. Nothing fancy but great quality sushi. It closes on the earlier side though. Even serves blowfish if you're feeling adventurous. Ajihei in Princeton has good quality stuff too if you're going to be around there, but it's a smaller, more casual place.
