Asian-inspired restaurants are all the rage in Denverand sushi is a big part of the trend. From mid-December until last Monday, three notable sushi-centric eateries opened in the metro area bringing a variety of experiences to lovers of sashimi and Japanese rolls.
Sushi Rama sits on Larimer Street and offers guests a contemporary take on sushi with a throwback to kaiten, the conveyor belt that ushers a fun selection through the colorful dining room. Guests are given a variety of options from an a la carte menu too, including classic nigiri, rolls like spicy poke, and small dishes like chicken lettuce wraps.
For a more classic take on sushi visit Sushi Ronin. The first restaurant to open in 2016, this LoHi spot is led by chef Corey Baker who prepares traditional Japanese bites to order for his guests. The drink menu, including Japanese sake and whiskey, complements the dinner-only menu.
Cherry Hills Sushi Co. joined the sushi scene earlier this week at 1400 East Hampden Avenue. The family-owned casual restaurant offers guests a selection of hand-rolls and sashimi. The menu offers three, four, or five hand roll sets but also special sashimi plates.
