Mid-priced sushi and potent cocktails in a huge, airy space..
Taking up nearly an entire corner block on Long Beach's coveted Promenade, the latest addition to the growing Wokcano empire is the biggest and baddest to date. Sweeping across 14,000 square feet and two floors (although this space is so big it almost seems like there could be a third one somewhere), the restaurant is a sleek, vaulted maze with two patios, sushi bar, a huge anterior lounge, secluded dining rooms and even a private karaoke room ('cause, you know, sometimes you just wanna belt out "Beat It" while stuffing your face with Doritos and spicy tuna tartare). Not to be outdone, the menu is just as expansive with items ranging from sushi and cooked Asian-tinged entrees to Japanese teppanyaki, which uses an iron griddle to cook things like calamari steak and diver scallops. Washing it all down is the hefty list of drinks including sake, beer, wine and entertainingly named cocktails like Yellow Dragon, Raging Red-Bull and Lust, Caution. Even better, it's all for the taking every night until 2am and 4am on weekends.
