Sushi Bistro Rolls Into Kirkwood
Want to know what's in a Kirkwood Roll? Sushi Bistro dedicates a menu item to its new home.
Sushi Bistro opened at 343 South Kirkwood Road Feb. 22, and its owners are proud of the restaurant's home in Kirkwood.
"Kirkwood is a place you can live, have your business here, and walk from place to place with your friends and family," Jim Lin, co-owner with Jeremy Li, told Patch. "It's a good home."
So much so that the Kirkwood Roll has a place on Sushi Bistro's menu, amid a mix of sushi selections as well as hibachi items.
Lin said Sushi Bistro chose to keep the typical hibachi show in the kitchen so that the chefs could focus more on the flavors.
"You may get the show at other places, but the food isn't as good," Lin said. "We recommend our habachi menu because we're more about the taste and the flavors."
So what's in a Kirkwood Roll? The hometown menu item contains tuna, salmon, avocado and cucumber. Watch a Sushi Bistro chef create a Kirkwood Roll in the Patch clip.
