Detroit Diary: The Sushi Doctor Is In The House

All over Detroit, people are buzzing about Dr. Sushi. His real name is Nick George, and he worked at Detroit’s best sushi restaurant before going out on his own a few months ago. Now, he operates out of residential kitchens, preparing rolls with only sustainably-farmed seafood. Once a week, it’s Dr. Sushi day. His fans order in advance–the other day, he made 24 orders for lunch and dinner–and he works from 7 am until the evening, making boxes of sushi that people pick up for a mere $9. Dr. Sushi likes that he can charge so little because he doesn’t pay for the space. And he makes a pretty decent living off the weekly pop-up, too–“enough to live, eat, have beers, and try new things,” he says. Who could ask for more than that, plus some amazing, fresh California rolls?
