Seattle now second most expensive US city for sushi

New York remains costliest as LA pushed into third place.

Seattle has taken the mantle of the second-most-expensive US city for sushi, heading off Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco, Bloomberg reports.

Perhaps unsurprisingly New York remains the most expensive.

Average prices are gauged on the bill for California and spicy tuna rolls, two of the best-known Americanized imports of Japanese cuisine.

Data was compiled from websites including Yelp, OpenTable and Menuism, as well as Bloomberg’s own surveys of restaurants.

The basic combination costs an average $8.87 (€7.59) in New York and $8.39 (€7.18) in Seattle, compared with a nationwide average of $7.14 (€6.11).

New Orleans remained the lowest cost city at $5.53 (€4.73), followed for a second straight year by Wilmington and Columbus, Ohio.

At 6.7 percent, Seattle saw the highest sushi inflation.
