While out and about last weekend, we heard some interesting information about the Whole Foods on the Bowery.
When the Whole Foods Bowery opened in 2007, the inclusion of Sushiya, a conveyor belt sushi spot, more properly called kaiten-sushi, on the second floor was met with some excitement. I ate there (and ate, and ate, and ate) with competitive eaters Tim Janus and Crazy Legs Conti while they were training for Nathan’s hot-dog-eating contest.
But rumor has it that the all-you-can-eat sushi is not doing as well as Whole Foods would like, and the preliminary plan is to rip out the conveyor belt in favor of a ramen restaurant. Which is just what that part of town needs!
