It’s hard not to want a sushi night like three times a week, so when I was invited to try out SEVEN SUSHI CAFE I was excited to see what was up with Bushwick’s sushi scene, where a lot of spots are really starting to pop up. Bonus: it’s located only 1 mile (or $3 Uber) away from my apartment so no need to worry about being late.
Seven Sushi’s decor is similar to a 70s retro theme but also has a literary / pop culture undertone with quotes from poets like Pablo Neruda cut out underneath the glass tables, which is a cool contrast to the interior you might perceive a Japanese sushi spot to be.
The appetizer list is colorful, featuring my personal favorite: the seasonal spring rolls, fried to perfection with cream cheese—honestly I don’t think I’ve ever tasted such a delightful fried roll filling combination.
Summertime is a perfect moment to try this new-ish Japanese restaurant with open windows and prime location near lots of Bushwick’s greatest spots.
