Sushi has quickly become one of the most beloved types of international cuisine among American diners. If you're curious about this delicious food and plan on trying it soon, it's a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with proper sushi etiquette.
As you will see in this video, it's best to use your chopsticks when eating sashimi, the thinly sliced fish; however, you should feel free to use your hands to consume larger rolls. Try your best to eat all of the sushi presented to you, as leaving behind an empty plate is a sign of respect to the hard-working sushi chef.
Blu on the avenue is proud to be one of Orlando's hottest spots for delicious and authentic sushi. To learn more about our sushi menu and our other fresh seafood specials, call (407) 915-4810.

Happy hour presents one of the best opportunities for you to strengthen both casual and professional relationships with your coworkers and superiors. Whether you're sipping on cocktails or enjoying a tasty seafood appetizer together, it's important that you take small steps when engaging in entertaining conversation throughout the evening. Here is a look at how to enjoy happy hour with your professional colleagues:
Pace Yourself if You Choose to Drink
When participating in a company happy hour, be sure to pace yourself throughout the evening. Order one beverage and sip on it for half an hour or longer so you don't become too intoxicated over the course of the outing. Remember that the point of the evening is not only to let loose, but to network with your colleagues and establish yourself as a reliable member of the team.
Know When to Switch to Water
As you drink a specialty cocktail or a refreshing beer at one of the top restaurants in Orlando, listen to your conscience when it comes to making the switch from alcohol to water or a soda. This is especially important if you need to be at work early the next morning. There are plenty of non-alcoholic beverages you can finish the night off with, such as a cranberry juice with club soda and lime.
Never Pressure Others to Drink
Remember to be sensitive and respectful of those who choose not to partake in the drinking aspect of your evening out. From health concerns to personal choice, there are a number of reasons why your coworkers may choose to abstain from drinking. Instead of asking them about their decision not to drink, make it a non-issue by focusing the conversation on other topics.
One more way to ensure a successful happy hour is to host your event at blu on the avenue on Park Avenue in Winter Park. Our contemporary restaurant offers a fabulous happy hour menu and delicious food options such as sushi, fresh salmon, and irresistible clam chowder. To find out what you can expect from happy hour at blu, call (407) 915-4810.
