One of my favorite sushi restaurants in SLC recently began a range of catering services. Available to spruce up a private party or a work lunch or event too. The prices look great here’s a few that caught my eye:
Sushi Platters serves 10 and includes wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, and chopsticks
– basic $100: a selection of freshly made rolls including california, spicy tuna, philly, and shrimp tempura
– vegetarian/vegan $100: a delicious assortment meat free rolls
– intermediate $150: for those who like more raw fish, this platter, includes the buddha, glitter, jersey devil, white mars, and a selection from our daily specials board
– advanced $200: for the real hardcores, this platter is made of the freshest and finest raw fish. includes nigiri, sashimi, and only the highest end rolls we offer
The restaurant asks 24 hours notice to fulfill these orders and prices do not include gratuity. A $10 deposit is also required – refunded upon return of their trays. Even cooler than that, their off premise catering sends one of their talented chefs to your next event for the ultimate party experience. Prices are per person (15 person minimum) and range:
