Tonight, October 7th, marks the start of Dr. Sushi's fall pop-ups at Rodin. The take overs will begin at 5:00 p.m. every Monday in October and November, with the exception of October 14th, the week of Dine Drink Detroit, when Rodin will be open but using its regular staff. That means seven sushi nights total this fall, so plan accordingly.
Dr. Sushi (chef Nick George) will be diving headfirst into using fall vegetables in his version of Japanese cuisine. He will be using as many local ingredients as possible, and as usual, sustainable fish will be the focus. George recently started collaborating with chef Ollie Honderd from Resto Change O! (George was Honderd's sous chef at the Revolver Hamtramck opening night dinner) and according to George Hondered makes an awesome tempura batter, so watch for that on the menu.
Each menu will focus on a limited menu of four or five rolls per week, and the goal will be serving things you can't get elsewhere in Michigan. Sushi will be a feature, along with some cooked dishes, and maybe (just maybe) some homemade ice cream at a later date. Diners should expect an appreciation for minimalism, and unique dinner options. There are no California rolls here, so don't bother asking okay? Check out tonight's menu, posted to the Dr. Sushi Facebook page.
