As cold weather nears, steaming bowls of miso soup beside an elegantly crafted sushi roll drift to mind. Grand Rapids is home to plenty of options when you are craving sushi. Here are a few of our favorites.

Ju Sushi and Lounge’s rolls are accompanied by a fine-dining vibe. This stylish eatery is only outdone by its elegant plating. Your meal will appear more like a piece of artwork than dinner. If you are looking for a date-night spot, this is the place.

Casually cool, Maru Sushi offers a laid back atmosphere but with attentive service. With a thrifty happy hour, this place is perfect for after work drinks and a snack or early dinner. Also, check out Ando, Maru’s sister restaurant.

Located in the heart of the city — across from Rosa Parks Circle — Sushi Yama is actually
a hidden gem, because it’s below street level. Duck into McKay Tower at lunch time and take the elevator to the lower level to enjoy this to-go spot.

If you are on the southeast side of Grand Rapids, Sushi Kuni is your best bet for lunch or dinner. This casual spot delivers on flavor and offers a playful menu with rolls like the 007, Harry Potter or Detroit roll.

Looking for a unique take on sushi, Jaku Sushi North offers the sushi burrito with over a dozen options. There are plenty of traditional rolls available here too.
