On a girls’ lunch adventure, my Deep Ellum/Uptown Girls Posse decided we wanted to try something new. Sushi sounded great, but honestly the thought of Sushi and Deep Ellum didn’t seem like a natural pair. Can delicate Japanese food art co-exist with the charcoal grittiness of urban backstreets?
We found our answer on Elm Street, through the doors of Lemongrass. We were blown away. Quiet elegance in the front. Giant sprays of orchids. The patio in the back was like walking into a vacation spot with lush greenery, while overhead netting and air misters protected you from the harsher side of Mother Nature.
When our tuna tower appetizer arrived we giggled from its deliciousness. Every bite was a tiny gift. Okay this might sound dramatic, but it’s completely true. And our rolls were equally fantastic. To finish it off you get a little piece of lemon cake, with the perfect amount of sweetness.
Places like Lemongrass make me so proud to say it’s in Deep Ellum, my neighborhood.
