Much Ado About Fuji

It takes something special to get Kirsten Henri to head to Jersey. Haddonfield’s buzzed about Fuji is perfectly fine but isn’t one of those spots worth the trek.

Fuji feels very … nice. It has an intimate vibe despite being hidden in the back of a Georgian-style shopping mall in the middle of Haddonfield. Water trickles over large river stones in wall-mounted fountains, the sushi bar is well-lit and attractively arranged, and the staff is very friendly.

So what brings Fuji out of the realm of nice and into extra-special? Not much. Everything was perfectly pleasant, but nothing indicated this was a restaurant worth braving the Jersey roads.
