Surreal sushi starts fresh. Each day, the Sushi Station at Dorothy Lane Market starts on a clean slate for good reason. Freshness. What you see in the case was made that very same day, with no exceptions. It’s all expertly created by our skilled Sushi Chefs who are masters of their craft and take the utmost pride in this DLM Difference. Their knife skills are swift and precise, and every hand movement is intentional as they layer each roll to specification, including outstanding sushi grade fish that meets the meticulous standards of our Seafood department.
The sushi grade rice is cooked just right and made multiple times a day for the same reason—freshness. This is also why the produce is carefully selected daily, from vibrant green avocado to thinly julienned carrots and cucumber to jalapeño. The result is a rainbow of exquisitely made sushi that greets you when you peer into the case, including popular favorites like the Salmon & Tuna Rolls, Shrimp Rainbow Roll, and Nigiri. Even if you aren’t a sushi lover, it’s hard not to stop and admire. There’s so much more to this brilliant display though than the best ingredients. A few years ago, we were ready to take DLM sushi to the next level and we knew that perhaps the most important decision we could ever make when it came to elevating our sushi experience would be the talent of the Sushi Chefs themselves, and our Sushi Chefs here at DLM are the best.
Like Sam and Christine, each of our Sushi Chefs and their sous chefs have their own story for how they learned this incredible skill. No matter which store you visit, you’ll notice a consistency with many of the featured menu items. On top of that, you’ll also see some variance depending on the chefs’ choice. As you enjoy DLM Sushi, rest assured that it was made fresh that day with great skill and care.
So as we all welcome the new year, be sure to fuel your appetite with our DLM Sushi experience. If you are a seasoned sushi eater, you are in great company. If you are new and unsure of where to start, that’s ok, too. Just let us know and we’ll gladly guide you. Enjoy!
