Round and round the fish goes at Yo Sushi, a conveyor belt sushi, or kaiten, restaurant that opened last week in the Flatiron. About the 100th in the international chain's fleet, the restaurant zips plates of sashimi, salad and sushi between booths and a bar setup; customers grab their desired dishes when it passes by their seat.

Dishes are priced according to the color of their plate, so six pieces of cucumber or avocado maki cost $3.50 while hamachi sashimi in orange ponzu sauce costs $8, with varying price levels in between. At the end of the meal, servers calculate the bill by adding up all the plates left on the table.

Servers aren't just for calculating the bill; they'll also be the ones taking orders for hot food items from the kitchen, which don't get the conveyor belt treatment. Those dishes include seafood and vegetable tempura, bao stuffed with miso chicken and kimchi salmon, and panko-breaded chicken thighs on white bread with tonkatsu sauce and mustard.
