WEST VILLAGE— Sakae Sushi's West Village location is finally open, and it's conveyor belt sushi for all. To the press release: " A conveyor belt of about 61 feet stretches directly from the kitchen to the booth seats, rolling out freshly-prepared, colored sushi plates. In addition to the patented “Interactive Menu” screen which customers can click and order through, the restaurant will also boast Sakae Sushi’s signature “dining tool” – the highly-anticipated self-serve water taps piped into each table for complimentary green tea refills."
