(NEW YORK) — Sushi is most expensive on average in New York City, while the pricest specialty rolls can be found in Greenwich, Conn., according to Bloomberg’s latest “Sushinomics” indexes.
New York topped the “Sushinomics Cost-of-Living Index” for the second year in a row, as average sushi prices are 3.3 percent higher than in Los Angeles, which took second place.
Sushi lovers on a budget should travel to New Orleans, which had the cheapest average sushi prices, at 23 percent less than the national average.
New this year is the “Sushinomics Premium Priced Index,” which ranks cities by their two most-expensive specialty rolls. Greenwich topped this index, as the two fanciest specialties rolls in the city’s restaurants cost $17.59 on average. The national average is just $10.87.
