Let's Roll Ditches Roll-Your-Own Sushi Concept ― for Tonkatsu

Let's Roll, a newcomer to Irving Street's bustling snack strip that billed itself as a a roll-your-own sushi bar back in August, has now opened. Only now, it's a tonkatsu (breaded and fried cutlet) house. The sign out front reflects the change.

We're not sure what prompted the cold feet, but after tasting specimens of both the tonkatsu (pork tenderloin, $6.99; bacon wrapped asparagus, $7.99) and sushi (krab California roll, $1.99), it appears the owners made the right choice. And, for the record, we still think someone could do well with a roll your own sushi restaurant if done well.

Let's Roll: 2150 Irving (at 23rd Ave.)
