My birthday is tomorrow night and we were thinking of going for sushi somewhere in our area (I live in Scotch Plains). We are totally unfamiliar with any restaurants of this kind, as my husband does not eat fish at all (except for tuna fish salad which we all know doesn't count as "fish"). Plus, we're both watching our weight (hence me feeling I can pig out a bit more on sushi than any other type of restaurant).
So, I have not had a chance to experience any local japanese places. It does need to serve other foods than sushi (there is a lovely tiny place in Fanwood which I p/u sushi at when I'm not with him but they serve nothing else). We're not crazy about hibachi places, but somewhere that serves steaks, teriaki and tempura in addition to sushi would be great. We're willing to drive a bit - but don't want to go too far.
Any suggestions? Or even if anyone knows of someplace that serves a healthier than usual menu would be great as well - does not have to be japanese :-)
