If you, like me, could eat sushi seven days a week, today is a good week to be you.

Not only is an Old Town sushi place about to reopen with popular new management, but a longtime sushi restaurant has just added a lunchtime buffet.

Here are the details:

Now open — Blue Fin Sake Bar & Sushi:Ninza Sushi Bar owner Ada Yang is still waiting to rebuild her restaurant at 13th and Tyler, which was destroyed in a fire in November. In the meantime, she's just purchased — and on Wednesday will reopen — Blue Fin Sake Bar & Sushi at 255 N. Washington. It's been closed for a couple of weeks while Yang made the transition, which included adding some of her own Ninza sushi items to the menu. The restaurant, which will keep its old name, will be open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays; from noon to 10:30 p.m. Saturdays; and from noon to 9:30 p.m. Sundays.

Just added — Jacky Chan sushi buffet:Jacky Chan, the 4-year-old sushi restaurant at 7820 E. Harry owned by Bihn Tran, just today added a new lunchtime sushi buffet. It's served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and includes a rotating menu of sushi rolls plus nigiri, egg rolls, crab Rangoon and hot dishes like lo mein, fried rice, sweet and sour chicken and chicken teriyaki. It's $10.99 for adults, $6.99 for ages 5 to 8 and free for children 4 and under.
