id City is a hands-on neighborhood, which our neighbors at Soji understand. Their focus on Asian fusion combines fresh, modern vibes with the old-school art of handcrafted cocktails AND handmade noodles.

After opening this summer at 5050 Government St., formerly Rotolo’s Pizzeria, neighbors are raving. When venturing to this new eatery, you may be overwhelmed by their inventive menu and not know where to start. Begin with a Crane Kick cocktail, by beverage director Lane Primeaux. Next, order some Szechuan Chicken Wings and a Sunkissed Roll as appetizers. Lastly, do not miss out on the drunken noodles. This crowd-pleasing dish is easily the most popular item on the menu.

As always, send your respects to the hard-working team in the kitchen. Chef Ryan André with his team of executive sous chef Derek Roth and sushi chef Josh Panyanouvong make a great team.
Menu items broken down;

  • Crane Kick – Gin, St. Germain, Green tea with caraway, white peppercorn, star anise, rice vinegar, and Thai basil
  • Sunkissed Roll – Ora King Salmon, spicy tuna, crab salad, avocado, tempura asparagus, lemon zest, and spicy truffle ponzu
  • Szechuan Chicken Wings – Spicey Szechuan seasoning, sweet ginger, pickled green onion, and cilantro​
