Man Sues Sushi Restaurant Over Rice

Click to Enlarge

A man recently filed suit against a Studio City, CA, sushi restaurant after he went in to take advantage of their $28 all-you-can eat sushi offer. The man ate the raw fish, but left the rice behind, which the owner took exception to – telling the man he would have to eat the rice too, since sushi, by definition, always includes rice. When the customer explained that he can’t eat the rice due to his diabetes, the owner offered to sell him two orders of sashimi (raw fish alone) for $25, $3 less than the sushi deal, which the customer declined, preferring a la carte prices.

Now he’s suing, and seeking $4,000 in damages for the “humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish”, as well as being discriminated against “on the basis of his disability.” The L.A. Times reports that he’s offered to drop the suit in return for a payment of $6,000.
