The menu and vibe will be familiar to Uptown patrons, as both are rooted in classic, cross-cultural flavors, with a chicly modern spin. Lunch, dinner and happy-hour menus boast hot and cold specials; diners can't go wrong with any of the colorful traditional and vegetarian rolls. There's even an indulgent one with a Texas twist, made with A5 Wagyu beef.
Cocktails include the Guava Splash, with Jameson, ginger syrup, guava puree and citrus juice. Want something less sweet, more smokey? Try the salt-and-pepper-rimmed martini with tequila, mezcal, Dolin Genepy Le Chamois Liqueur, firewater bitters and a touch of agave.
The sexy cocktails are complemented by the stylish environs, with geometric elements on the floor and walls, and a honeycomb-like ceiling fixture. Black and white wallpaper features an artful seascape, nodding to the fresh fish on the menu.
"The goal was to create a comfortable environment with a look and feel that would change from day into night," said co-owner Peggy Chang in a statement. "In the evening, the lighting and music bring a very upbeat energy, especially on the weekend."
The recently opened City Place is poised to become a social and cultural hub in North Houston, located at I-45 and Grand Parkway. In addition to miles of trails, a nature preserve, three Marriott hotels and a movie theater, City Place is home to employers that boast a total daytime workforce of nearly 20,000. That biz-lunch crowd will surely have a new go-to in Sushi Rebel!
