Ten metro Detroit sushi restaurants that are not BluFin

There are plenty of other fish in the sea

Facebook and Yelp ratings are plummeting for BluFin Sushi in Grosse Pointe Farms after a group of black women say they were mistreated while at the restaurant. The Facebook Live video of the incident’s aftermath set off a social media firestorm calling for a boycott of the restaurant and prompting BluFin to temporarily close its doors on Sunday and delete its Facebook page.

While the fate of BluFin is up in the air, we compiled a list of 10 other sushi restaurants to satisfy your raw fish cravings.

Social Sushi 

This black-owned sushi pop-up, that focuses on community collaboration and conversation, is gearing up to open doors to their own space this year on Livernois. In the meantime, you can catch them popping up at various bars around the city.
