Beyond the sea of exotic cars and the double rainbow of Celine bags, is a brand-new hotspot where the beautiful people of Orange County are holding court comparing real housewife battle stories about their recent tour of the Neiman Marcus shoe department. Introducing Fashion Island‘s latest and greatest restaurant: Sushi Roku.
Let’s not beat around the Bentley, shall we? Sushi Roku will without a doubt fit quite nicely into our community with style + Gatsby attitude. But that’s just the beginning. It’s undeniable this IDG restaurant (or should I say epicurean wonderland,) is sending a explosive spark thru the main culinary artery of Fashion Island, and the keg is about to go, “BOOM!”

The palpable vibe isn’t just for OC socialites and power players either. We all know JetSet Tot is big a fan of fancy-dancy dining, and Sushi Roku impressed the pint-sized foodie bite-after-bite as she successfully managed to eat her weight in sushi thanks to Executive Sushi Chef Hiroshi Shima. He personally made sure her sushi dreams came true after presenting this platter in front of her tiny eyes which grew the size of the flying saucers.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about sushi, and the feeling was mutual. Kiddo made it crystal clear on the ride home that on a scale from good to awesome, Sushi Roku earned a perfect score of YUM-azing! Now that’s big. “YUM-azing” is not a term Tot uses lightly.
