Looking for unique and delicious snacks for a cocktail party? A sushi bar for your wedding? A gourmet five-course dinner?
Whatever you desire, we can make it happen!
A few ideas to get you started:


Sushi bar

We’ll come to your house, office, cave, boat, etc. and prepare fresh sushi rolls for you and your guests. We'll have sushi ready when guests arrive and keep rolling throughout the party. Guests can request special rolls, or choose from the prepared platters. We’ll work with you to create an ideal menu or we’ll feature the chef's choice menu.


Izakaya night

An Izakaya is a Japanese pub that serves delicious small plates of food to accompany your drinks. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day or catch up with old friends. Turn your own home into an Izakaya for the night! Dr. Sushi and the crew will set up shop, mix up some drinks, and churn out delicious small plates all night while you relax with friends and family. Sample menus available upon request.



Japanese food isn’t always sushi, ramen, and tempura; the majority of Japanese cuisine (Washoku) is based on seasonality, using what’s in season and abundant - fish served grilled or raw, vegetables pickled or simmered in complex broths, and fresh noodles or steamed rice that round out meals. When people call Japanese food "so healthy", this is what they’re talking about. Balanced home-style dishes consumed daily. Our Midwestern take on Japanese gourmet and comfort foods is what we pride ourselves on most. Contact us and we'll help you create a memorable food experience for your guests.

A few times every month, we take over the kitchens of our favorite Detroit bars and restaurants to show you what we've been working on.
We serve Japanese classics with modern twists, inspired by Michigan and its cultural diversity. Sometimes there's a ping pong tournament, or you'll catch the kitchen crew DJing, but you can always count on a fun time and great food!

Want to learn how to make sushi? How about in the comfort of your own home? The Doctor offers up his expertise in hands-on sushi-rolling workshops, where students learn how to roll maki, futomaki, and temaki style sushi. At the end of the lesson, students will also become fine diners and enjoy the fruit of their labors; they will have their own handmade sushi for dinner! All supplies and ingredients, suitable for omnivores, vegans, and the gluten-free, will be provided by Dr. Sushi. You’ll even take home your very own sushi rolling mat after the class! Private classes start at $50 per person and you can get in touch here. To sign up for a public sushi class, check out our Eventbrite page using the button below.




About the Chef

Nick George entered the food world at the tender age of 16 working prep at a Japanese market and sushi bar. After years of making food for friends and family on weekends, he started catering parties as a private sushi chef. In 2012, George started Michigan's first sustainable sushi business, and has since developed skills across the board, with a focus on Washoku, Izakaya-fare, home-style dishes and comfort foods. Using Great Lakes seafood and seasonal Midwestern crops, George's cooking is an ongoing experiment in an effort to be in tune with local agriculture.
