It's been mainstream for quite a while here and pretty popular all around. But if you mean hip, popular or cool and associated with city/young people when you mean "trendy", it still seems to have that kind of association overall I'd say.

Sushi - and its' local cousin - poke (pronounced po-kay) are ubiquitous here in Hawaii. Every grocery store sells a dozen or more varieties of poke.

I'm in a little city in TN and sushi can be had at many restaurants, grocery stores, etc, and it is not anything out of the ordinary. The retail clerks at the local store pick up sushi for lunch.

And in Memphis you can get sushi at the gas station, lol.

Sushi was "trendy" in 1985. lol

Kroger has it here but it tastes like cardboard.

In Honolulu it was excellent.

I think once you've had bad sushi you can more easily appreciate good sushi. Because good sushi is reeeeeeaaaaally good food, IMO. If I want sushi, I don't head to the supermarket, no way. It's still trendy, most definitely, just check out those all-you-can-eat sushi bars on Fri/Sat nights. Packed, with hipsters and non.

It's going to depend on the area, obviously. Where I'm from, it's commonplace. It was considered "adventurous" maybe 15-20 years ago. However, a good sushi experience will still be memorable. I would also tend to agree that every generation seems to rediscover it, so I guess it could be considered "trendy" with some of the younger people.

I live in Hawaii and sushi can be eaten all over the place. So, no, it's not trendy, adventurous or exotic here. I just love eating it and it's quite healthy.

No, it isn't "trendy," just another food choice. I see Duluth is still 20-25 years behind the rest of the US when it comes to certain things.

I think eating sushi is pretty common and I see all types of people when I go out for sushi. I do enjoy sushi, but I've only been eating it for a few years, I still have yet to eat any raw fish, and I never use chopsticks, so maybe I'm not that "sophisticated."

I think that it's 'adventurous' for many people, but not exotic - I mean it's available everywhere - even the nearest town of any size (pop 12K) has a sushi restaurant, if I'm not counting that every grocery store also has sushi.
