Yet another sushi place

Stuyvesant Plaza says Mr. Fuji, the Clifton Park Japanese restaurant, will be opening a location at the shopping center in July. [email press release] (Matthew's a fan.) As previously announced, SP is getting a Chipotle, too.


The owner of Peaches Cafe just died a little inside.

That's tough, Sushi Tei is right around the corner and is pretty much the best spot in the area for the money. Have we approached the saturation limit for takeout-level sushi in Albany yet? Let's trade some of the middle eastern flavor around center square to the suburbs in exchange for a decent sushi joint, can we do that?


Double ugh.

I like my sushi and all, but really... the area is totally overdoing it.


Double ugh?

Seriously, Mr. Fuji is quality. This is a significant improvement from the piss poor Ichibans and hibachi clones scattered throughout the region.

Check out their location in Clifton Park and report back - For the three years I've been going there I've had nothing but fresh fish and wonderful service.

I have to agree with Alex!

have the people "ugh-ing" ever been to Mr. Fuji? Seriously awesome! Not just take out level sushi, but fresh, yummy stuff! I even saw Abelone on the menu last time I was there! I'd try some of their food before y'all start ughing at them!

Laura, Alex. I don't think the quality is the problem. It's that we've already got that covered in that area. What do we have downtown? Ichiban? Kitsu? It's not that Albany doesn't need another good sushi joint, but that the uptown, state campus/Crossgates area doesn't. But hey, in Stuyvesant Plaza's continuing ebb toward the banal, a sushi joint fits perfectly.

B, as a Center Square resident I totally understand your point about oversaturation uptown and a need for quality sushi Downtown (especially since Totem left)...

However, compared to some of the generic restaurants that could be installed at Stuyvesant (bland places like Cheesecake Factory or dumbed down asian like PF Chang's), I'd easily take a quality, non-corporate sushi joint like Mr. Fuji.
