Roseville residents with a hankering for Japanese food and the ultra lounge experience have a new option. Sake House, in the Fountains shopping center, (1017 Galleria Blvd. #160, Roseville) served its first meals at lunchtime today. Sake House is the lastest venture from restaurateur Randy Paragary, who partnered with local nightclub maven Bob Simpson for the lounge element of Sake House. Billy Ngo of midtown's Kru restaurant helped conceive the menu, which includes:
Poke Trio - salmon with ponzu, ginger, sesame oil, kaiware / tuna with soy, chili oil, masago, green onions / tako with wakame, ponzu, chili oil, and shallots
Angie Baby Roll - soy wrap, cucumber, avocado and masago; topped with yellow fin tuna, albacore tuna, sautéed mushrooms and scallions
The Inferno Roll - spicy tuna, cucumber, sprouts and jalapeño; topped with yellow fin tuna and jalapeño-tobiko chili sauce
Grilled Rack of Lamb - rosemary-balsamic teriyaki sauce
And if you aren't stuffed with sushi, you can get your groove on starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday nights. The cover charge is $20 - about as high as you'll find in the area - but the cost comes down depending on your age. Ages 30+ get $5 off, 35+ get $10 off and ages 40+ are free. When it comes to age, there's no shame in this ultra lounge game.
Update: Cover charge for the lounge is also waived for diners.
