Asian Rim Sushi Company, a full-service restaurant featuring a diverse menu, opened Nov. 4 in the Colonnade.
Owner Roy Hockman, a former franchisee of 14 Outback Steakhouse restaurants, said high quality, exciting food is the epicenter of Asian Rim.
“I consulted dozen culinary teams across country and selected a team of ‘cuisine wizards’ from Seattle,” he said. “The team came to Birmingham three weeks ago and knocked it out of park.”
Hockman said Asian Rim was also able to capture and perfect other dimensions of the dining experience. He said the location is a “cut above in hospitality” and includes an upscale theme developed to give off a “wow factor” for new guests.
Since its opening, Hockman said items from the sushi menu have been the best sellers, with guests gravitating toward the Lotus Roll, which includes crab, spicy tuna and crispy Lotus Root, and the Toomer’s Corner and Roll Tide rolls. Each roll comes with a signature dipping sauce designed to complement specific flavors, he said, but guests shouldn’t overlook other flavorful dishes like Certified Angus steaks and Singapore Pork Ribs.
Catering is available at Asian Rim, as well as a “Grab and Go” cooler for self serve and self pay sushi, salads and sandwiches.
The restaurant is located at 3419 Colonnade Parkway. For more, or to place an order, call 490-1444 or visit AsianRim.com.
