Conveyor Belt Sushi Fail: Midtown Sakae Goes Bye Bye
The Midtown branch of Sakae Sushi (the conveyor belt sushi chain from Singapore that is hugely popular in Asia) has been permanently closed down. I can’t say I’m entirely surprised… the prices were kind of high, the quality of the fish was not the best, and the place was never at capacity. I’m still kind of bummed it didn’t work out though- I do love conveyor belt sushi. Their West Village location (on 3rd Street just East of 6th Avenue) is still open, so we’ll see if this overseas chain can make it work in the states.
