Waiting for Sakae Sushi to Open

NY’s first kaiten sushi (sushi on a conveyer belt) will be opening any day now. Until yesterday, the windows were still covered- a guy (a partner/owner?) saw me peeking through the paper and invited me in to check out the space. When I asked if I could take pictures, they declined.

But looky looky- here it is today! Basically, there are only boothes for seating, and a conveyer belt will transport sushi round and round on each side of the tables. Midtown Lunch got a lucky demonstration last week, and it looks like you can order more food off the LCD screens. WOO HOO!!!

The guy yesterday told me that it will open TONIGHT- but that is yet to be determined. As their phone voice recording says, they are closed to the public this week. The guy urged me to come on Tuesday though– he said by then, everything should be perfectly ready to go.

Sakae, NYers have been patiently waiting for months. Hurry and open already!


*CORRECTION from Marc W.: Sakae Sushi isn’t NY’s first kaiten spot. One of the East empire’s locations, on Second Ave in the 30s, I think, has had kaiten in the back for quite a while. Course, the sushi is only mediocre there.
