Sushi Restaurant and Tapas Lounge Now Open in Long Beach: Suba Sushi

Two of my favorite types of food have formed the perfect marriage: Sushi and tapas. Long Beach area's latest sleek lounge, Suba Sushi, is serving up a seductive splicing of both.

The narrow restaurant, punched with red décor, places the kitchen as the main attraction. Bold, street-style Asian artwork by Mark Richmond is the backdrop for Executive sushi chef, Shane Hollinger, to unfurl his delights to diners. Sharing the space is Executive Chef David Santiago Sr., who hails from New York City where his Spanish cuisine gained attention in SUBA NYC and Boqueria.

Together, Hollinger and Santiago present an unusual, but palate-pleasing, array of menu options. They include Atun con Picquillo Peppers, roasted Piquillo peppers stuffed with Yellow Fin Tuna; and the Light My Fire sushi specialty, made with spicy tuna, cream cheese, tempura jalape?o and mango honey.

I'm a fan of Suba's Raciones, the cold plate Spanish specialties, particularly Chef Santiago's Carne a La Plancha, with hangar streak and pimientos. Sake and hand rolls or sangria and ceviche? No need to choose either dining option while Suba exists to supremely satisfy either craving.
