RANCHO BERNARDO— The owners of Love Boat Sushi, who opened Blue Ocean in Carlsbad and converted their Love Boat in Fashion Valley to Blue Smoke, recently remodeled their Love Boat Sushi outpost in Rancho Bernardo and renamed it Big Bang Sushi. The newly-modernized space is still serving much of the original menu, but a new addition is an all-you-can-eat sushi option, available at lunch or dinner. [EaterWire]
