Wasabi Sushi & Asian Grill Restaurant Review

: With a softly lit dining room appointed with Asian-inspired furnishings, this hip, compact spot does sushi the way it is meant to be done. Behind the rambunctious bar area where neighborhood regulars tip back as much Budweiser as saké, a well-lighted space showcases sushi chefs hard at work. You’re in Louisiana, so be sure to try the crawfish roll and the house special French Quarter roll. Several non-sushi entrées also shine. Cast-iron pots hold noodle soups, while nabeyaki udon contains scallops, grouper, carrots, oyster mushrooms, tempura shrimp and an over-easy egg. Prepare your taste buds for an ice cream dessert, with flavors like plum, green tea, cappuccino, ginger and red bean, but the tempura cheesecake is a singular wonder. Wine selections are limited. Service is professional.
