You could walk over to Umiya from the Rio if you wanted to. It's only a short, three-minute drive and provides a great sushi option. Open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Umiya also caters a little more to those late-night eaters.
The biggest thing people love about Umiya is the all-you-can-eat menu, which isn't too pricy and includes an extensive menu of items. This is a great spot to hit if you're looking for good, quality sushi, but confined to a 60- or 90-minute dinner break.
