Will you "fish" for your sushi at this new restaurant?
New York City’s Zauo is changing the way we dine
In order to stay relevant, restaurants around the world have been innovating food to entertain diners. From rainbow bagels to Hot Cheetos burritos, in the era of food fads, truly anything is possible.
Now, a New York City restaurant is having eaters "fish" for their own sushi before it is prepared. Zauo features shallow fish tanks and waiters who hand out fishing rods to eager customers. Every time you catch rainbow trout, salmon trout, fluke, shrimp, flounder or any other swimming spectacle, it is quickly prepared and then yours to eat.
Zauo is a Japanese restaurant chain that is making a splash in America. Rui Higuchi, the establishment's general manager, believes that this style of service builds a connection between consumers and what they are consuming.
“We say ‘itadakimasu’ in Japanese before every meal, which in most places means ‘bon appetit’ or ‘let’s eat,’” he told Mic. “But there’s a deeper meaning — we’re grateful for everything that went into that meal.”
Boasting high-quality, peak freshness, and a dining experience unlike any other—will you put your hook in the water at Zauo?
