I’ve said in the past that I’m a big fan of instant gratification. Kaiten (carousel) sushi, while popular in Japan, hasn’t taken off like one would think it would in the US yet, at least on the East Coast. Sushi Cruise, a new Kaiten-style sushi restaurant which just opened in the Marketplace Shopping Center in Edgewater (which also houses Su, the new vegetarian Asian Fusion restaurant) is one of only a few such places in North Jersey and New York City, which include East restaurant in Teaneck, which has been serving that style of sushi for about seven years now since its last renovation in 2001.

The tables have a view of Manhattan, if you prefer your sushi a la carte.
The sushi conveyor belt.
First to be pulled off the conveyor — shrimp and tuna.

Smelt Egg roe I pulled off the conveyor.
Beef Negamaki appetizer
A happy sushi chef.
Putting the finishing touches on a sashimi order.
A Salmon Tataki appetizer with a simple soy/sesame oil sauce and radish greens, I really liked this one. Generally speaking the a-la-carte sashimi appetizers at Sushi Cruise are excellent.
A crazy sushi roll combination we ordered a la carte.
More sashimi. Yum! This is thinly-sliced fluke in a ponzu sauce.
