It is History

History buffs, listen up!

Let's dive into the captivating tale of Honshu, the sensational sushi bar nestled in the heart of Jersey City. Our story begins in 2005 when Honshu first graced the culinary scene. It was a well-kept secret, so hidden away on the second floor that it practically played a never-ending game of hide-and-seek. Fast forward to today, and Honshu has racked up an impressive collection of nominations and awards, both locally and nationally. We're talking "50 Best Sushi Bars in America" as bestowed upon us by The Daily Meal, and the prestigious title of "1st Sushi in Jersey City" as hailed by Foursquare, a title we've held onto for years. Now, here's where the plot thickens. With the same dedicated team and our trusty location intact, Honshu remains steadfast in its commitment to elevating the customer experience. And guess what? We're thrilled to introduce Nigiri, a cutting-edge addition to our gastronomic repertoire, 18 years in the making. So, whether you're a history aficionado or a sushi enthusiast, Honshu's journey continues, promising a delightful fusion of tradition and innovation that's bound to tantalize your taste buds. Join us as we embark on this delicious adventure!
