Behind Matsuya Sushi & Grill‘s sparkling L-shaped sushi counter, succulent fillets of tuna, salmon, and white fish succumb to chefs’ keen knives before joining rice in bite-sized nigiri or tempting rolls. Avocado and crab add color and flavor to the Rainbow roll ($8.95), and yellowtail and fried scallions pose for spreads in Tiger Beat in the Rock ‘n’ Roll roll ($4.95). Hibachi grills sizzle as a swashbuckling chef taps and tosses mélanges of shrimp and chicken ($14.95), and deep-fried teriyaki tofu joins sides of noodles, rice, soup, and vegetables ($11.95). Waiters dressed in traditional Japanese robes and hats ferry plates decorated with carrot roses and artful splashes of sauce across the dining room, where screens and blond woods cultivate a peaceful atmosphere.

The last Sunday of each month, Matsuya’s chefs unfurl their rolling mats for 50 or more novice cooks during make-your-own-sushi courses. Over the course of four hours, house chefs teach the basics of assembling and slicing rolls into symmetrical segments before students consume their creations and write linked verse about the impermanence of dinner.

Dressed in traditional Japanese robes and hats, waiters ferry plates decorated with carrot roses and artful splashes of sauce across the dining room, where screens and blond woods cultivate a peaceful atmosphere. Chefs reveal their sushi secrets every Sunday, bestowing their knowledge upon students during four-hour all-you-can-eat sushi-making classes.

The class on how to make sushi was fun.
Mike F. · August 14, 2012
Jacky was expert and a good teacher. We gained confidence in making sushi and look forward to having more. We would return to dine when in Jacksonville and eating sushi. We live in SE Georgia and day trip to Jacksonville for entertainment. Groupon was daughter's gift to Father.
