Lovers of fresh sushi and Japanese fare will rejoice when they visit Geisha Sushi located in Capitola. The restaurant features an incredible list of sustainable, local items. The ocean-friendly menu is home to a wide variety, including sushi rolls, bento boxes and a great collection of specialty teas. There is also a large selection of organic and vegetarian courses to suit your needs.
As a joint effort with the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program, Geisha offers small educational pamphlets on the table that give customers a glimpse into the source of their fish. When you stop to think about the impact that fishing has on our oceans, it’s easy to see that this small restaurant is making a big difference!
The concept behind a menu devoted to sustainable, seasonal and fresh fish lends itself to a new experience for sushi lovers. Thoughtful and unique creations may replace some of the “classics” so be prepared for an expedition in culinary artistry.
The upstairs location gives a great view of Capitola village and the cherry blossom theme is relaxing and cheerful. The service staff is knowledgeable and friendly to top off this welcoming environment.
Geisha Sushi has also teamed up with San Francisco’s Tataki Sustainable Sushi to take their ocean-saving effort one step further. The restaurants have co-adopted Davenport State Beach and maintain regular beach cleanups there! Save Our Shores is proud to have made this ally.
