New sushi restaurants open
Baton Rouge's selection of sushi restaurants has gotten even more bountiful this month with the opening of two new spots—Sushi Masa on Essen Lane and Kabuki Sushi and Japanese Steakhouse on Bluebonnet Boulevard. Sushi Masa offers Japanese fusion cuisine and steak, as well as an extensive all-you-can-eat menu that includes several varieties of sushi, appetizers and dessert, and even your first round of cocktails. "A sushi dinner can get really expensive," manager Tim Dju says. "This lets people go out and know beforehand how much they're going to spend." Signature sushi rolls include the Zack Special—tempura battered snow crab and shrimp; and the LSU roll—snow crab, cheese and crawfish masago deep fried and topped with spicy sauce. Kabuki occupies the space that was formerly Primo's Steakhouse, and offers both fresh sushi and hibachi tables, as well as private "tatami rooms," where guests can dine while seated on the floor Japanese-style.
