Sushi Roku Restaurant Review: In keeping with hip, W hotel style, this modern Japanese spot is glam Cal-Latin American fusion, and chock-a-block with designer cocktails. What else would we expect from a restaurant that debuted in West Hollywood, then invaded Santa Monica, Pasadena and Las Vegas under celebrity investors like Ryan Seacrest and Tori Spelling? Go here to get your graze on, with some three dozen appetizers, two dozen-plus sushi options, and just a half dozen entrées. But be careful, dishes are pricey, and can wound those who order carelessly. Perhaps you crave lobster medallions with truffle oil glaze, a sea bass spring roll, Japanese Wagyu with mushrooms, and Asian barbecue short ribs? That’ll add up to $100 easy. An entrée of roasted lobster, prawns and scallops in pink peppercorn olive oil is more than $40. Much of the buzz is about the digs, spanning 6,000-square-feet with large boulders, teak, black slate and an open steel staircase soaring to a second-floor patio (mini skirt-wearers will want to don their prettiest underwear for this climb).
