If you haven’t been to the Village on the Parkway in Addison lately, you may be surprised at what’s been popping up there. Since Whole Foods moved in, the European style shopping complex has been filling up like hotcakes. There’s a plethora of boutiques, restaurants and even an AMC Theatre that just opened.
And conveniently located adjacent to theater is RA Sushi, set to open this Monday, November 10th.
RA Sushi has 28 locations in nine states, including the new Addison location. There is also a location in Plano and another one set to open soon in Southlake.
RA Sushi is more than just another sushi restaurant. Sure, it serves a smashing line-up of creatively conceived sushi, sashimi and other Japanese inspired food options. But it also offers diners a hip and upbeat environment to go along with the food.
The 4,700 square foot Addison location features a sleek and airy space complete with a traditional sushi bar, a large adjoining dining area and a separate lounge that opens up onto a huge patio. The patio also boasts an indoor-outdoor bar and an awesome fireplace, making it an ultimate place for a date-night, especially after seeing a film next door.
As far as the food goes, some of the items you’ll find include a chili ponzu yellowtail, with thinly sliced yellowtail, jalapeno, cilantro and sautéed cashews; sake steamed black mussels sautéed in garlic; chicken teriyaki with udon noodles and black pepper sirloin steak.
There’s also a wide selection of sushi rolls, including its signature Tootsy Maki, a duo of crab and shrimp wrapped in seaweed and encased in rice, drizzled with sweet eel sauce and topped with tempura bits; and the Viva Las Vegas Roll made with kani kama crab and cream cheese that is rolled in rice and seaweed before being lightly tempura battered and topped with a fried lotus root.
Everything we were treated to at a media tasting was packed with flavor and textures and the presentations were stunning. The restaurant has a cocktail program offering 11 types of sake, signature craft cocktails, beer and wine.
Main courses range from $13.25-$19.50 and apps range from $7-$14.25. Sushi roll platters are priced between $8 and $15.25, hand rolls go for $5.50 each and sashimi goes for $8.50 to $13.25. The menu offers plenty of options to fit any taste and budget.
Most important to note is that RA Sushi has a great happy hour, Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. featuring deals on select sushi and apps as well as drinks.
