Buddha Fish Arrives on Westfield’s Restaurant Row

Ready to roll!

Buddha Fish, the new sushi and tapas destination on Restaurant Row, is putting some finishing touches on its menu ahead of an upcoming grand opening celebration.

The stylish establishment arrived earlier this Summer in the former location of Mojave Grill. The spot was completely renovated, both exterior and interior. A transformation the Buddha Fish team says has already paid-off with initial reactions from the community. They explained, “It’s been very positive, guests love the ambiance, staff and most importantly… the food!”

As the soft opening concludes, takeout is now available and its website and social media accounts are bubbling with activity.

The former Mojave Grille was one of three shuttered restaurants owned by Robert Scalera in the restaurant-heavy strip of Elm and Quimby Streets in Downtown Westfield. Scalera also owned Theresa’s and Isabella’s. As his tenure as the “King of Restaurant Row” comes to an end, he is replaced in many ways by Buddha Fish’s ownership group, who is also affiliated with a trio of town restaurants, InnovAsian Taco on Quimby Street and Inspiration Roll on Central Avenue, the other two.
