LIVINGSTON, NJ — With both a sushi bar and traditional Japanese lunch and dinner menus, Aru Sushi celebrated its three months at 517 South Livingston Avenue with Livingston Mayor Al Anthony and members of the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday.

“It’s exciting to have a sushi restaurant back in this location,” said Anthony. “The owners, Robby and Cristin, were very hospitable offering a tremendous amount of delicious food at the ribbon cutting. Their name Aru, meaning ‘artistic, remarkable and unique,’ demonstrates that it is not an ordinary restaurant and it’s great to have such a place in Livingston.”

Festive Halloween decorations gave the celebratory ribbon cutting a seasonal feel as guests enjoyed some of Aru Sushi’s small dishes, featuring the fresh ingredients that the restaurant prides itself on.
