Yushi Introduces First Refrigerated Sushi Conveyor Belt
Once again, you’ve got to give credit to Yushi (on 47th btw. Park+Lex) for trying. After introducing their new conveyor belt, soliciting advice from Midtown Lunchers, and then sadly turning the conveyor belt into a “for display only” situation, they’ve now changed things up again. Today Yushi is replacing their “Spruce Goose” with the very first fully refrigerated sushi conveyor belt.
I have no idea what that means, or the technology involved, but apparently the genesis of the idea came from Yushi’s desire to have a conveyor belt you could actually take food from, while answering the customer concern that food on conveyor belts is not always fresh. I always thought the best way to do that was by making sure your restaurant is always packed with customers constantly eating the food… but sure, crazy refrigerated conveyor belt is a good option too! Any kaiten early adopters out there? Feel free to report back. The conveyor belt is open daily from 11:30am to 2:30pm starting today.
