The restaurant scene in Bethpage is rife with change. Now, Watawa Sushi & Lounge has opened in the former digs of Sumou, which lasted less than a year before closing. Prior to that, the space was occupied by Ozumo, another Japanese restaurant.

The sleek-looking Watawa offers an all-you-can-eat option for $21.95 Monday to Thursday and $23.95 Friday to Sunday. Order from a special menu of sushi and kitchen items and, when you’re finished with one dish, you can order more. What you can’t do is leave with a doggy bag. There’s also an a la carte charge for over ordering and not finishing food.

You can, of course, opt to order from the regular menu, with such choices as black pepper tuna tataki ($10), a mango Hawaii roll with salmon, avocado, mango and eel ($12), chirashi ($18), shrimp teriyaki ($16), beef sukiyaki ($16) and a chicken tempura bento box ($19)
