Sushi and more
From the April, 2011 issue
If you thought the small Arbor Square Plaza at Carpenter and Ellsworth was a strange place for a sushi conveyor belt, you were in good company. Donghun Jang, who bought the modest Japanese restaurant Sushi Nara about six months ago, skeptically let the sushi train run for about a month, then took it out (it was installed two owners ago when the restaurant was called Kagayaki Sushi). Sushi trains are cute gimmicks, but he points out the obvious: "I think for this area, not a good idea. Maybe for downtown--a lot of walking people."
