"This is real all you can eat," said Master Katsu Young, the owner, namesake and head sushi chef of Katsu. "This is not a buffet, everything here is fresh."
"Real" simply means no sushi is made until you order it, a trend the west coast and even Las Vegas has been tapping into for some time. Katsu brought the idea with him after moving from a sushi restaurant in L.A. a year ago to open up his own bar in Colorado.
"It's great," said Cody Olinger, who was indulging in the all-you-can-eat dinner menu at Katsu. "I would easily spend three times this much on a la carte sushi, and the quality is just as good. Plus I get to see [Katsu] make it so I know it hasn't been sitting out."
The price for lunch is $13.95 and dinner is $23.95, and the menu includes a salad, miso soup and the full menu of rolls, tempura and nigiri. This unfortunately does not include some of the chef's signature rolls.
But there are rules. First, there is no sharing. Second, substitutions will cost extra. And most importantly, you must finish all of your rice, otherwise you will be charged full price for the piece of sushi.
