Places to get late-night sushi

Yokohama Sushi

If sushi sashimi and sake bombs consume your midnight cravings, then a late-night sushi joint is the right place for you. Yokohama Sushi in east Boca is open till 2 a.m., serving made-to-order sushi and traditional Japanese dishes.

Yokohama has a decent selection of imported Japanese beer, wine and sake. They also have a special half-price menu of 20 traditional sushi rolls that are cheaper because the portions are smaller.

“The late nights on Wednesdays are really good,” says server Rob Holly, a senior psychology major at FAU. He’s also a Jersey boy who speaks fluent Japanese.

The back room, called the Tatami Room, has a $25 minimum per person, but it’s the VIP spot. It seats up to six, and you will be waited on hand-and-foot to ensure an enjoyable experience. Your food will even be made first if the restaurant is busy. Yokohama is also camera-friendly, so if you and your friends take a picture while hanging out there, bring it and they will put it on the wall with numerous others.

Sushi Jack can be spotted behind the counter at The Lounge, a club in West Palm Beach creating unique sushi dishes for anyone who asks. During the regular dining hours (6 to 9 p.m.), you can get sushi at a cheaper price and free refills on sake. If you decide to have a late night at the clubs on Clematis Street on Friday or Saturday, Sushi Jack will fill your tummy until 4 a.m.

Beyond the convenience of a late-night snack, Sushi Jack also teaches sushi classes. The last Tuesday of every month, he will teach you the history of sushi and even how to pick good fish.

The students’ creations are made into a buffet at the end of every class so that everyone can enjoy their hard work. Classes run for $35 and usually go for three hours. Remember, returning students get a discount!
