What: To celebrate the opening of its first U.S. location, YO!

Guests will enjoy modern Japanese cuisine while watching three-time World Sumo Champion Byambajav Ulambayar battle US Sumo Champion Kelly Gneiting, emceed with full explanation of sumo rules and culture.
YO! Sushi will serve a three-course meal during each match, consisting of edamame, whitefish sashimi topped with yuzu salsa, “Hi-Bana” spicy tuna on a crispy rice cake, popcorn shrimp tempura glazed with creamy miso, a California roll, Scottish salmon nigiri sushi, and mochi ice cream, all paired with three different sakes for total cultural immersion.
