What would happen if all the fish in the world were suddenly raptured into fish heaven? For starters, every sushi spot would probably become a lot more like Beyond Sushi. This is a counter-service place that’s perfect for a quick lunch, and they specialize in sushi rolls that don’t actually have any fish. Instead, they use stuff like mango, avocado, and burdock root, and the results are actually very good. They also do some wraps and salads, and pretty much everything here will make you feel reasonably healthy.
