Luckyfish $1 Anniversary Today

Bob Brooks | Mar 19, 2009 04:28 PM

Today is the first anniversary of Luckyfish in Beverly Hills. To celebrate, everything on their kaiten sushi belt and all drinks are only $1 from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.

Because my office is just a half block away, I walked by at about 11:20 this morning and snagged one of the few remaining seats.

The overwhelming majority of the items on the belt were cut roles with very small amounts of fish in them. There were plenty of plates of edamame and salad items, but the nigiri sushi was pretty sparse and grabbed up by diners closer to the start of the belt.

Actually, the one nigiri sushi item I did get was decidedly unappealing. This was probably the worst sushi rice I have ever tasted; cold, tough and gummy. I was happy to leave after about 4 plates.

When I did leave, the line in front (at about 11:50), was getting fairly long with about 20 people waiting to get a seat.

When I drove by at 1:30 it was even worse. And, I suspect most of the turnovers will not be nearly as quick as mine was.
