AJ’s Sushi & Cajun Seafood

Suffern

With a commitment to high-quality seafood, AJ’s makes it easy to taste the freshness in every bite. Order off the sushi bar lunch menu to indulge on an assortment of sushi and sashimi. If you go for dinner, make sure to request the sushi menu (AJ’s also has a Cajun menu if you’re craving a seafood boil). The regular lineup allows for a la carte orders so you can pick and choose between different rolls. If you’re really feeling hungry, however, opt for the all-you-can-eat option to sample and savor across the restaurant’s spread. Top picks include the Cancun roll (a combination of spicy tuna with chili powder) and the Mexican roll (shrimp tempura with avocado, carrots, and spicy sauce).

Aji Sushi

Brewster

The sushi bar lunch menu offers the option to order any two rolls for $11.50 or any three rolls for $14.95, making it an excellent go-to on a busy day. For other delicious bites, the sushi bar entree menu has choices such as the love boat for two or the special roll combo (Red Dragon roll, California roll, and salmon avocado roll). Vegetable, cooked, and raw rolls are also on the menu for whatever you’re craving.

Sushi appetizers, sushi/sashimi entrees, and signature rolls are also available.

Bonsai

Multiple Dutchess County locations

With three Dutchess County locations (two in Poughkeepsie and one in Fishkill), Bonsai is a go-to for many Hudson Valleyites. Dine in or take out sushi rolls, sashimi, bento boxes, hand rolls, and more. Notable selections on the lunch spread include the sushi special box (chef’s choice sashimi, sushi, and one sushi roll) and the trio sashimi (three pieces of tuna, three pieces of salmon, and three pieces of yellowtail). For dinner, the bento box options don’t disappoint; they feature miso soup, salad, a four-piece California roll and teriyaki roll, and two items you can choose from the menu.

Chinese and Japanese food delight the taste buds at this quaint Catskill location. Dine in or take out classic sushi favorites such as a tuna, salmon, yellowtail, California, or avocado roll. Many of the sushi entrees pair with miso soup, salad, and a choice of brown or jasmine rice. The Catskill roll is a must-try, thanks to its combination of shrimp tempura, avocado, lettuce, and cucumber topped with shrimp, smoked salmon, kani, and avocado.
