While things are quiet over at 715, I’ve begun my own process of moving out of my apartment. New Brunswick has a lot to offer and I wanted to make sure that we made the most of it before giving up our dirty brunz crash pad, so we made ourselves a bucket list.
So far out of 20 items on the list, we’ve crossed off 5, plus some essentials that we forgot to include (it wouldn’t be a spring weekend in New Brunswick for Matt if we didn’t visit the Rutgers driving range!).
1. Sushi Room
Sushi Room is an amazing little sushi place in New Brunswick right under the Easton Avenue Apartments. It’s BYOB and the service, presentation and food are all excellent, even if you’re not crazy about raw fish- the avocado salad and sweet potato tempura are my two favorite items on the menu!
My friends and I had gone there to celebrate a friend’s birthday a couple years ago when the restaurant had first opened and we were the only people in the place. The owner waited on us himself and let us request songs (bonus!) so Sushi Room has always had a special place in my heart. As far as Matt’s heart goes, his family spent time living in Japan when he was younger, so even if he doesn’t remember much about what it was like residing in Tokyo, he is fearless when it comes to the Sushi Room special- a dish that looks extra raw to me.
Just FYI, the item pictured above was an amazing green tea ice cream dessert that would have been worth the trip alone.
