My wife and I headed out for our date night to 515 Akebono for a little Japanese fair. Now I was a little nervous because my wife is not a sushi fan but I knew she would be a good sport. 515 Akebono is still in the soft opening stage with their grand opening estimated on August 15th. The restaurant has opened across the street from the Raccoon River Brewery and next to Joseph's. They have a nice patio, dining area, bar, and sushi bar.
My wife and chose to go with a couple skewers of zucchini and pork belly. They were seared and coated with a light sesame sauce. Delish!
From the soft launch menu we chose to go with Bento box. The Bento box includes a choice of meat, sushi roll, sticky rice, and salad. We enjoyed sharing and the variety. We are excited to return and try something from the full menu after the grand opening.
