Holy Shishito Chicken, Ra Sushi

The trendy sushi joint introduces more shared dishes to their popular, appetizer-style menu. A play on sweet and sour versus General Tso’s preparation, chicken is lightly fried and sautéed in a sweet chili-sesame sauce and tossed with onions, green and red bell peppers and flash-fried shishito peppers. Most of these peppers are simply tangy, but the general statistic is that one in every seven is spicy, so watch out!

Pollard brought his love for Italy with him to the recent 10th annual Tales of the Cocktail spirits and bartending convention in New Orleans. At happy hours, a “Spirited dinner” (attended by the sixth Count Branca—the real deal!) and even a cocktail breakfast, Pollard carried the banner of the Distillerie Branca portfolio, including the cultish Fernet Branca.
