Sushi rolls under domes are delivered via conveyor belt.
Sushi-Rama opened on Sunday in River North, featuring a menu of sushi rolls and Japanese small plates from chef/restaurateur Jeff Osaka. Osaka's reputation — from his two Osaka Ramen noodle bars and his time as chef at Twelve — helped draw customers this week, but the main attraction inside is the kaiten conveyor belt that ferries color-coded plates to waiting guests.
