Plus-- what would a super picky 3yo eat there????
Yes - though I think it's a personal comfort level thing, the only thing I've changed is that I'm not eating tuna and I'll only eat sushi freshly prepared in restaurants I trust.
From what I read, there are two big issues about sushi, or really any type of raw meat. Parasites[*] and the general food preparation stuff which becomes more important for raw stuff. Parasites are mostly taken care of by freezing the fish / meat beforehand and should also be caught by an attentive cook as they inspect the flesh before preparation.
[*] BTW, the biggest vector for toxoplasmosis is not cat litter, but contaminated meat, mostly game.
