Sushi is my jam. I have my favorites, as we all do, but I’m always looking for new sushi bars to sidle up to. When I was invited to a media tasting at Black Ship Little Katana, a sister restaurant to Katana and Little Katana (inside the Galleria and over on Travis in Uptown, respectively), I was excited. Walking in, the space is cool, definitely more decked out than the other Katanas, and a bit more upscale. The tasting was quite a spectacle. Chopsticks at the ready…
1) Solid drinks. The cocktails are fab. My favorite by far was the Saratoga Milk Punch, below.
2) Outdoor seating. All the restaurants along this little strip have outdoor spaces and this one is no different. It’s Dallas, so weather-permitting, you can sit your sushi-loving tushi outside on this here patio and watch the city.
3) Sushi bar. These guys are into their art. We’ll also get to that later.
4) Really delicious sushi. For a setting that could easily spiral into “sexy sushi” territory (sparklers, fried shit everywhere, etc.), the fish here is fresh and tasty.
5) Hot dishes galore. The chef, Chef Richard Morotto, turns out high-end Korean and Japanese specialties like this Wagyu hot rock.
