Yoshino-Ya menu

Dublin Core

Title Yoshino-Ya menu
Description This menu shows that sushi was being served in New York as early as 1932. The fact that the menu was in English, and that the suki-yaki special included a typically American dish of raw celery and olives, indicates that the restaurant welcomed non-Japanese customers.
