"There are lots of people who only like American-style sushi, but you'd be surprised how many people like authentic nigiri sushi (raw fish served over a rice ball) or sashimi (sliced, raw fish)," she said.
For families worried about feeding kids, Carrizosa said Sushi Neko has a selection of spaghetti, chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. But don't count out young palettes, she said. Many kids love the egg sushi and the classic California rolls.
But sometimes it's adults who are picky eaters, which is why the restaurant also offers fully cooked entrees, like New York strip and filet mignon steaks, miso-glazed salmon and crispy duck breast.
"We just want everybody to feel comfortable here," Carrizosa said.
And for those who feel especially comfortable, the restaurant offers the "Addict Card," which lets diners rack up points each time they eat at Sushi Neko, earning gift certificates and invitations to special events.
"It's a nice way to make everybody feel special."
