Rock 'n' Sake Restaurant Review

: New Orleans hosts many sushi joints, but for enjoying sushi in upbeat, fast-moving surroundings with a lot of laughter and partying, Rock ‘n’ Sake is the place. The restaurant hit its stride when the sushi craze first reached New Orleans in the 1990s, and a visit today can seem equal parts nostalgia and adventure. Fresh fish and a good selection of rolls overshadow whatever non-food-related quirks the restaurant displays. The rolls even get into the dessert act; how about a panko-crusted, flash-fried PBJ roll nestled in a pool of honey-infused grape jelly? Tempura cheesecake and tempura ice cream round out the sweet set. Beer, wine and saké are offered quaffs. There is an extensive take-out menu, and one that’s very in-theme (no chicken fingers) for “Small Samurai.” Have a drink in the Kai lounge, indulge in small plates (try the sushi deviled eggs), share some sushi and sashimi, and buy the “sake-sushi-saints” T-shirt on the way out.
