I LOVE hibachi/teppanyaki cooking, but I've never seen a Japanese steakhouse shopped either. There is the one sushi chain that's located inside a grocery store, and you have them make a custom sushi order for you and time it while taking pictures of the case... that's a good shop.

Raw fish in Nebraska? I think I'll pass on that one!
I've shopped a regional chain of Japanese/sushi restaurants a couple of times. They're only located in CA, NV and AZ though. Haven't seen it on the board since I did it last time in September though. Hoping to see it again soon! I need some more sushi! smiling smiley

Shopping central Arizona.
I did a fantastic sushi shop for Coyle once but I haven't seen the Hawaii locations on the job board since.
Benihana used to be shopped, and they serve sushi. All the ones near me closed, so I don't know if they are still shopped.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008

Could you be confusing "sushi" with "sashimi"? According to www.diffen.com/difference/Sashimi_vs_Sushi:

"Sashimi is thinly sliced raw meat—usually fish, such as salmon or tuna—that is served without rice. Sushi is not raw fish, but rather vinegared rice that is mixed with other ingredients, which may or may not include raw fish. In some countries, the terms "sashimi" and "sushi" may be used interchangeably, but this is incorrect usage."

I had sashimi once. It was very fresh raw fish, thinly sliced and served with soy sauce. It had been caught only hours before in the Pacific Ocean near Wake Island (about 2500 miles West of Hawaii). At the time I didn't care for it. It wasn't bad, it's just that my taste buds found greater pleasure elsewhere.

Sushi, on the other hand, is a treat. My grocery store (actually an Air Force commisary) has a sushi kiosk inside the store. I periodically grab a lunch sized serving and enjoy it before heading home with my groceries. It's fast food oriental style.

I spent 3 years living in Japan while in the Navy. "Nigiri" Sushi is basically a rice ball with thinly sliced raw fish on top. Other items other than raw fish can also be used such as shrimp, eel, octopus, squid etc. The version of sushi most popular in the U.S. are the "rolls" which are closer to what is called "maki" sushi. These have evolved to such things as California rolls and similar variations. Most often the rolls do not have raw fish in them. I much prefer nigiri sushi but obviously it has to be freshly made.

I did the Benihana shop once about a couple of years ago. It was a great experience and we loved it. The restaurant is still there in the upscale mall in Indianapolis (Fashion Mall) but the MSC that did do them are no longer shopping them. If anyone sees them on another MSC, it would be great to know as I would definitely go looking for the shop again.

Shopping across Indiana but mostly around Indianapolis.

I grew up in the Omaha area and I am here to report that they do indeed have a modern airport. LOL. So I think flash frozen fish can be flown in to Nebraska just as easily as it is to most American cities.

I actually had some really good sushi in Omaha last time I was there and it was cheeeeeeeeeep. I miss Omaha prices. Sigh.
