Sushi Roku threw another wonderful hint of its new menu at a party recently at its location in the Forum Shops. The Innovative Dining Group showcased all new items and recipes for the media. Starting with nine “tastes” just in the appetizer menu, with Brussels sprouts chips with truffle oil and salt, roasted cauliflower with red dates and pine nuts, fried calamari, charred jalapeno flaze, bluefin tuna yuzo ponzu, along with seared salmon sashimi togarashi, toro sashimi oscietra with caviar, tuna tartare, seabream sashimi to seabass & Wagyu sliders, we were all totally full before the tasting was halfway through. Most of the items will remain through the fall, but as time goes by some will be out of season and of course new ones will appear.

We moved on to an extravagant plate of sushi, featuring toro, salmon and yellowtail Matsu Style. Each course was tastefully paired with the perfect beverage. The Toro Sashimi had seven distinctly unique rubs, with hempseeds and jalepenos, to show the dedication that goes with each dish. The sliders were deep fried beef and Chilean sea bass on King’s Hawaiian rolls, with cabbage slaw and two sauces. The meal was eventually topped off with bananas flambe, chocolate filled donut holes and a chocolate volcano.

Popular new drinks, the Yuzu Fizz, with Bulldog Gin, fresh Yuzu, and pomegranate and The Last Act, El Silencio mezcal, Ancho Reyes liqueur and fresh orange juice, went with two different courses.

One can dine with a beautiful view of the Strip, or just stop by at happy hour after shopping for some appetizers and a relaxing time. Sushi Roku also has locations in Hollywood, Santa Monica and Pasadena, along with a host of other sister properties including the fabulous BOA Steakhouse. All restaurants in the Innovative Dining Group are known for their expertise and taking care of the tiniest details.

Located on the 3rd floor of the north end of the Forum Shops.
