Sushi Lounge, with three New Jersey locations, isn't your typical Japanese restaurant. It's a social scene with the areas top DJ's, and a menu that offers a good selection of Japanese food.
It's the "in" place to be seen by the young crowd, the trendy, and the pub hoppers.
The atmosphere is energetic, and the sushi bar is loaded with stools that run all the way down past the full bar.
