4 New Restaurants to Try in July

A sushi conveyer belt and other fresh offerings.

Roka Akor

HIGHLAND VILLAGE AREA // Contemporary Japanese robata cuisine from hot newbie Roka Akor has luxurious dining and impeccable ambiance. Japanese wagyu selections, a sushi program acclaimed by Travel + Leisure and bon appetit, premium Omakase option and open air kitchen - all dressed to impress. Don't miss the robata grilled Alaskan king crab with chili lime butter, wagyu and kimchi dumplings, or toro tartare with caviar.

Seaside Poke

EADO // The poke addiction continues with bright, sleek new Seaside Poke. Mix different proteins or keep it strictly vegetarian - we're loving the array of unique toppings from watermelon radishes and truffle oil to black puffed rice and herbs freshly snipped to order straight off the plant. Pick from pre-designed signature bowls or create your own with any-fin your heart desires. With a side of ube or matcha rice krispie treats.

South Bank Seafood Bar

MIDTOWN // New favorite summer night hangout South Bank Seafood Bar offers a spacious, lively patio complete with plenty of fans, corn hole, great music and a true backyard feel. Grab the kids and the dogs for a night of lobster quesadillas, burgers, clam chowder fries and local brews enjoyed alongside one of the most picturesque views of the downtown skyline. Pro tip: Go at sunset. Photo: @madzpayne

Sushi Gami

GALLERIA // Seat yourself at new conveyor belt sushi spot Sushi Gami overlooking the mall's ice skating rink and watch all kinds of tasty bites roll by. Freshly made at the bar in the middle, you can mix 'n match small portions of items like nigiri, rolls and salads by taking them straight off the belt yourself. Or, order menu items from the kitchen like udon, rice bowls and gyoza. A waitress will add up your plates based on color so you can get right back to shopping.
