Mondays at Mizu

In: Eating

5 Sep 2011

UPDATE: closed (map) It may sound hard to believe, but there’s a reason to love Mondays: all sushi rolls at Mizu Steak & Sushi are half-price. Mizu has six sushi chefs (try saying that fast) who craft rolls both classic and “modern.” Head chef Jennifer creates wildly imaginative combos with crazy names like McLovin’ Sr, Italian Buddha and Nietzsche. They all sound so tempting, we wanted to try every one. And at half-price, you can get pretty far down the list!

Chefs at the bar were so busy cranking out the rolls, they hardly had time to look up.

Almost too pretty to eat – almost. Above, the front roll is the Applejack, which is wrapped in thin slices of Fuji apple instead of rice or seaweed. It’s filled with fresh tuna and hamachi (yellowtail), daikon radish and cucumber. In the middle, the Mizu roll is made with chunks of lobster and topped with seared kobe beef. Grilled asparagus is also inside, and the roll is topped with chimichurri sauce. So smoky-flavor-good! In back, the Nietzsche roll, made with spicy blue crab, avocado and cream cheese, and wrapped in soy paper.

Chef Kyle searing our kobe beef.

Mizu has a big indoor dining room as well as an outdoor patio. Both have killer views.

Sushi rolls and hot sake are half-price every Monday from 5 to 7. It can be a mad frenzy, though, so be prepared – you may need a medicinal Mizu Margarita!
