When you go out for sushi, you expect a certain kind of experience, rife with minimal decor, a clean and modern presentation, and deliciously fresh flavors. Englewood’s Akai Lounge nails it, to the delight of local sushi lovers!
Start your meal with an order of succulent steamed shrimp dumplings, Prince Edward Island mussels sauteed in a sake butter sauce, or the beef negimaki. When it comes to sushi, the menu is extensive. The nigiri is expertly cut and presented, with beautifully fresh fish receiving the spotlight it deserves. In addition to the classics, Akai Lounge offers a number of innovative and unusual specialty rolls. The Bassterd Roll pairs spicy tuna with avocado and grilled Chilean sea bass, while the Devil’s Advocate is a monster with spicy yellowtail, shrimp, and cucumber topped with red and white tuna, chili sauce, and black tobiko. Akai Lounge also serves a number of cooked dishes and fusion items; try the lobster “pizza” for a unique treat!
