Why so much SUSHI in Northampton??

Vinny Clams | Sep 28, 2002 09:59 AM

What is the story with all of the sushi in Northampton? In this town of 30,000 souls there are 6 (count 'em, SIX) japanese/sushi restaurants! And, there is yet another one scheduled to open above Fire and Water on Main Street soon to make it SEVEN!

I don't get it..is there something I don't know about the insatiable hunger for raw fish with 18-25 year olds?

In the meantime, we have no credible chinese restaurants (all are your basic kung pao chicken spots..) and we have no vietnamese, korean, portugese, spanish, french, latin, or seafood restaurants.

It's getting a little weird out here, chow-wise. Any thoughts?
