Talk about a major throwback! Flashing disco balls, go-go dancers, and bangin’ beats are sure crowd-pleasers at this Thursday night sushi-and-a-show bonanza. As you enter Sushi Roxx in New York City’s Midtown, you’re greeted by a sleek modern bar with Japanese wall art. Walk down a little bit farther and you’ve gone back in time to ultimate grooviness, dynamic craziness, and fresh funkaliciousness.
Sushi Roxx is beyond a restaurant — revelers can jam to the best of oldies but goodies while devouring a delicious dinner. It’s a great idea for big groups for birthdays, special events, or a big night out. Leave the sappy one-on-one sessions for coffee, because this is definitely not the place to catch up. You can barely hear yourself think! Instead, dance those feelings away to the beat of “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics.
Here’s a quick teaser taste of the menu from last Thursday’s shenanigans.
Shishito Peppers had a sweet honey glaze to mediate the typical spiciness. Yellowtail Jalapeño was absolutely mouthwatering.
Tuna Flatbread Pizza: The soft tenderness of the tuna poke complemented the crunchiness of the ultra-thin flatbread perfectly well.
Lobster Mac & Cheese is ooey, gooey decadence at its prime. The lobster chunks were juicy and hefty, and the cheese was perfectly melted.
Uma Thurman: Spicy tuna and yellowtail are a match made in heaven in this roll.
The bite-size Surf & Turf roll includes shrimp tempura, filet mignon, and snow crab.
Nutella S’mores: simply heaven in a nutshell (or should I say nutshella).
Caramel Apple Cheesecake: so crumbly and delicious, you’ll wonder where it’s been hiding all of your life!
Sushi Roxx’s eclectic selection of sushi and creative cocktails are served in a super colorful, neon-lit space with peculiar but aesthetically pleasing wallpaper and highly talented, professionally trained dancers, singers, and actors who perform nightly. Its mission is to welcome guests with the most exquisite in gourmet cuisine along with carefully crafted cocktails and vivacious hospitality. If you can’t make oldies night, swing by Tuesday through Saturday evenings.
Above all, there is always a reason to celebrate at Sushi Roxx. It’s the all-time, must-be-at dance party in Midtown. Not only did the go-go dancers and show performers dazzle and delight, but the food most certainly did as well. I must admit, I had one (if not two) of everything. I was left beyond satisfied and already can’t wait to come back. I’m still dreaming about that caramel apple cheesecake…
