Sushi hit Naples, Florida, big time at the turn of this century. The town’s inventory quickly grew from a handful to at least four times that today. Many non-Asian restaurants even began adding sushi bars to the premises. Still today, Cirella’s in Bonita Springs and Noodles Italian Café and Sushi in North Naples hand out sushi menus along with their Italian cuisine menus. Others expand beyond Japanese dishes to include Thai, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese and even, as in the case of Komoon Sushi Thai & Ceviche, Peruvian influences.
AZN Azian Cuizine at Mercato in North Naples takes the fusion trend to its most modern, most gourmet extreme in a dramatic indoor and outdoor setting . This list includes all of these permutations of the sushi bar, plus some spots truly devoted to Japanese fare and nigiri, sushi, sashimi and maki rolls. From AZN’s stylized. low-light setting, they range to corner strip mall eateries with bright, minimalist design. Some add hibachi grills to the mix, others boast extensive menus and exotic cocktails. In other words, just because this list is only about sushi, expect to find great variety in what each of the 10 best restaurants offer for sushi non-lovers as well.
