SUSHI ROXX’s Boogie Nights is Your Newest Mid-Week Obsession

Sushi Roxx is back to partying weekly with its flamboyant “Boogie Nights at SUSHI ROXX NYC.”

Fortunately, I was invited to get a sneak peek of the show, which included (a surprisingly filling) dinner, drinks, and of course, dessert.

As I cabbed my way uptown I had no idea what to expect. In all honesty, I thought a disco-themed sushi place sounded strange, but once I walked inside my skepticism immediately disappeared.

A host dressed in an all-white, flared suit greeted me as I passed a marble bar and entered a room filled with Japanese art.

Once my party was sat, two waitresses dressed in bright orange took our drink order and handed us a pre-fixe menu that included puny sushi choices such as the “Uma Thurman” roll, made with spicy tuna, yellowtail, avocado, and tobiko wrapped in cucumber with ponzu.

I started off with a Kung Fu Hustle (made with Absolut, cucumber, thyme, lime, and sparkling water), which was refreshing and light, the Lobster Mac-and-Cheese (read: for serious cheese fans only) and an order of Japanese Eggplant.

Then I ventured into unknown territory (this was my first experience with sushi), with the Surf & Turf (shrimp tempura, snow crab, avocado topped with filet mignon, sweet soy, and a yuzu miso reduction) and the Uma Thurman roll.

Throughout our dinner, waiters and waitresses transformed into performers (fully clad in brightly colored uniforms), dancing to ‘70s-themed numbers choreographed by Michael Jackson’s former backup dancer, MaxxReed.

We ended our exciting night with Carmel Apple Cheesecake and, my personal favorite, Nutella S’mores – I was literally taking a spoon to the skillet before we left.

So, if you find yourself bored on a Thursday, then Sushi Roxx is the place to go. Not only will you get dinner and a show, but one of the performers might ask you and your friends to join in, which would, of course, make for an epic night.
