Naked Sushi

When: Thu., March 24 2011

As if using chopsticks wasn't scary enough, along comes nyotaimori, the practice of using those chopsticks to eat sushi off a nekkid model. That's the drill at tonight's Naked Sushi event at Suite Sixx in the Warehouse District. Meantime, the minds behind the concept belong to chef-organizers Matt Mytro (Stove Monkeys, Crisp Catering, and Yum), and Dante Boccuzzi, owner of Tremont's eponymous Dante and its soon-to-open downstairs sushi bar, Ginko. Perhaps you wonder what to say to the naked hottie from whose tummy you're dining? Worry not: Nyotaimori is considered an art form, and you aren't expected to engage the artwork in idle chit-chat. Such questions aside, though, the night is shaping up nicely, complete with three lovely lady models, one hunky dude model, plenty of great eats, and music from DJ Kosher Kuts (motto: "Shalomie Homie"). Preceding the 9 p.m. sushi service, a lineup of passed apps will include hoisin-cucumber-glazed pork shoulder, smoked chicken with sweet plantains, salmon-ponzu ceviche with grapefruit chili, and assorted steamed "sticky" buns featuring Asian and Latino flavors. Tickets are $15 at Dante (2247 Professor Ave.) and, or $20 at the door. It's happening from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at Suite Sixx, 1212 West Sixth St. in the Warehouse District. — Elaine T. Cicora
