Yes, New Times roll. Sushi One has decided to immortalize the paper on its walls and in its menu with this decadent concoction. The creation is essentially an inside out tuna roll filled with tempura flakes and scallions, then topped with more tuna, scallions, and spicy mayo. It's a delicious roll, with bits of satisfying, crunchy texture interspersed among the supple slices of tuna, the grassy bite of the scallion reflecting off the gentle heat of spicy mayonnaise. A work of art, no less, and one the common man can enjoy at $7.95.
OK, there's some hyperbole in there, but it is a good roll.
Although it has only officially graced the menu for a few months, the history of the New Times roll goes back to 2006, when then-publisher Adam Simon used to frequent the sushi spot. Adam ordered the custom maki with such regularity, it became an unwritten part of the menu. Now that those menus have finally been changed, Sushi One decided to permanently etch the name within its hallowed halls.
So thank you, Sushi One.
