I’m a native New Yorker and I’m going to have to say NO WAY! to that. Hawaii is definetely the sushi capital of the USA, however if we’re talking mainland USA, it’s LA hands down. NYC could never hold a candle to sushi from LA. I’m no Sushi expert, but plenty of my friends from the NYC area are and I know they’ll agree with this.
I know enginecapt said Southern Cal is the fast food capital, he could be right, but honestly I just didn’t see it when I was out there.
