A Sushi Joint with Three Karaoke Rooms
Big night last night.
Big three-day weekend ahead.
So let’s keep this short: there’s a new, Japanese-designed sushi joint over in the Avenues. It’s
, it’s now open, and here are the three best times to get over there...
1. When you have a song in your heart.
This place has karaoke rooms. Three of ’em.
And they’re spectacular
: each one’s enclosed in glass, has special acoustic paneling and
includes a touchscreen monitor for scrolling through songs. Plus the seats are tatami-style—tatami are
those low-flung Japanese mats you see in samurai movies—for easy crowd-surfing.
2. When you’re up for some creative sushi.
They’ve got 50 rolls awaiting your beck
and call. There’s a tempura-shrimp-and-seaweed number called the Angry Bird
(for some reason).
There’s the Long King
—baked salmon with garlic cream sauce over a California roll. There’s...
3. When you need some liquid courage.
Here’s how it’ll go down. You walk in. You
spy the 25-foot-long bar. (You can’t miss it; it’s a 25-foot-long bar.) You order some soju. You order a
nearly two-liter bottle of sake. You make friends. You and those friends belt out “More Than a Feeling”
in a glass-enclosed karaoke room.
And it feels like victory.
