Drooling, yet?  I thought so!  Between the photo and the headline, I've had to stop myself from licking my computer screen.

A brand new sushi experience is coming to the downtown Kalamazoo restaurant scene sometime this year.

Maru Kalamazoo LLC is opening in The Depot building at 427 E. Michigan Avenue, and will offer sushi, soups, salads, noodle dishes and more.  Do I nosh on some Nigiri first?  Dive in to Sashimi? Start off with some crabby mushrooms to share?  Share... who am I kidding...?

Maru is a small Michigan based chain that also has locations in Grand Rapids, Okemos, East Lansing and Midland.

Welcome, to Kalamazoo, Maru!
