Signage Up At FiDi Yushi Location

While walking by the “coming slowly” location of Yushi on Pearl St. (btw. Maiden & Cedar) yesterday I noticed signs were up, and although the windows are still papered over there were people coming out who looked like they were there for training.

Second Downtown Yushi Outpost Spotted

I’ve only eaten at the Yushi in the World Financial Center once to try their healthy take on chicken katsu, but it wasn’t bad, so I was happy to see paper up in a window on Pearl St. btw.

Yushi Adds “Sake Ramen” to the Menu: The Midtown Lunch Team gave us a heads up about this one! Yushi has added a bowl of Ramen with a full cup of sake mixed in.  According to the website, ID is actually required to order it!  Lucky us, we get to share in the fun with our very own Yushi on Vesey Street on the west side of the West Side Highway.  It may be a trek, but is it worth it? Early adopters, let us know what you think in the comments.
