YO! Sushi Anticipates Opening in Union Station July 23

From a press release:

YO! Sushi, is crossing the pond this summer, opening its first US location in Washington, DC’s historic Union Station this July. Known internationally for its fresh perspective on Japanese cuisine and unique dining experience, YO! Sushi comes complete with its conveyor belt and popular menu of over 70 Japanese inspired dishes, to one of the world’s most dynamic, cosmopolitan cities.

YO! Sushi currently operates throughout the UK, as well as the Middle East and Norway. Washington, DC was selected for the company’s American debut because of the city’s vibrant and diverse community. YO! Sushi has built its reputation often in mass transit stations, bustling urban areas and in premium shopping centers, offering outstanding quality and excellent service with every visit. Union Station will be no exception, making YO! Sushi convenient to residents, Capitol Hill staffers, business travelers and DC tourists alike.

YO! Sushi’s conveyor belt system puts the entire menu of fresh, handmade menu items literally at guests’ fingertips, making a quality twenty minute sit-down meal a reality for someone on the go. A computer monitored tracking system ensures that no dish remains on the conveyor belt longer than one hour, guaranteeing that every dish is fresh.

The restaurant’s design caters to guest interaction, as each seat features an airplane-style call button to ring servers, as well as a water dispenser filtering complimentary chilled still water.

YO! Sushi offers guests seating at the conveyor belt, or at tables for a more conventional meal with outstanding tableside service.

YO! Sushi’s ninjas make every dish fresh to order, always available for dine-in or carry-out. The ninjas are highly trained at their craft, offering YO! Sushi signature creations like the Salmon and Avocado hand roll, a seaweed cone packed with rice, premium salmon, avocado, mayonnaise and sesame seeds, and the Spicy Tuna Gunkan, featuring top-quality yellowfin tuna with spicy masago sauce and spring onion atop two pieces of rice wrapped in seaweed.

But YO! Sushi is just as much about sushi as it is about other modern Japanese inspired food and drink. YO! Sushi’s ninjas craft hot favorites like spicy Shrimp Firecracker Rice with Asian vegetables, pan-fried Yakisoba Noodles in a mild tangy sauce with a choice of chicken, shrimp or vegetables, and Chicken Katsu Curry, crispy fried chicken with rice, a mild curry sauce and a Japanese pickle.

YO! Sushi’s Executive Chef, Noriyuki Kudo, a native of Japan, has worked in a number of renowned restaurants, most recently Sushi Roku and Katana in Los Angeles. He comes to DC with his knives at the ready and a crew of skilled ninjas ready to impress.
