Although sushi originated in Japan, the fresh seafood and sticky rice dishes are almost an American staple.  Luckily, we live on the East Coast which means we have an abundance of fresh sushi ingredients that restaurants take advantage of.  Imagine being in a landlocked state!  Check out our list of some spots where we’re sure you’ll find some spectacular sushi!


Kyoto Sushi & Hibachi Restaurant

If you’re coming back from the beach, and craving a little fresh seafood or even some hibachi, Kyoto is a great spot to try out.  Located just two miles from Sandy Hook, they serve a variety of rolls showcasing their fresh fish.  Looking for something more theatrical?  Try their hibachi option.

Nobu New York

Is celeb spotting one of your favorite hobbies?  If you aren’t afraid of spending a little extra to dine at this very famous spot, then make your way over to Nobu!  Besides its elite clientele, Nobu features sushi with a Latin twist.  Have you ever had jalapeño in your sushi?  Well at Nobu anything is possible.

Curious about the way Buddhist monks used to live, or maybe you’re just not a fan of fish? Check out Kajitsu, the vegetarian sushi spot.  Modeled after a shojin style of cuisine, the foundation of all Japanese cooking, the food is made using fresh ingredients which work together to enhance each individual flavor.

Sogo Sushi

If you happen to be in Red Bank, just a short drive away from our Atlantic Highlands terminal, stop by Sogo Sushi, a small sushi restaurant that exclusively uses brown rice.  Why the switch? Brown rice is a much healthier whole grain, and Sogo does it right.  With an interior on the smaller side, grab your rolls and head down the block to the park for a riverside view.
