Look for a veritable house of sushi and sake coming to Roseville in mid-December. Sake House, located in the Fountains shopping center, marks a new project for local restaurateur Randy Paragary and nightclub maven Bob Simpson. The two are already behind such downtown spots as Empire and K St.'s Cosmo Cafe/Social nightclub.
Chef Billy Ngo, co-owner of Kru and the upcoming Red Lotus, is consulting on the menu. Expect some of Ngo's fondness for Japanese-inspired small plates along with such traditional fare as sushi, teriyaki and tempura. Ngo will also assemble a lengthy sake menu, true to the restaurant's name. Sake House will include DJ dancing on its menu of offerings.
Sake House marks Paragary's second entry into Roseville's restaurant scene. He currently co-owns Mas Mexican restaurant, located on Eureka Rd., with Zocalo proprietors Ernesto Jimenez and Jim Johnson.
