About the restaurant
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

About the restaurant
Asthetically, architecturally designed. Beautiful space with an exciting rooftop deck. More worth visiting to taste what PITCH offers- Craft culinary that features a Coal Fire oven- fresh artisan style pizza, hand cut filet, house made pasta, with fresh seafood. Come taste some PITCH favorites, such as the 'truffle frie' or 'roasted brussels sprout'. Scratch made cocktails, boutique wine, all delivered with memorable guest experience. Originating in the Historic Dundee neighborhood of Omaha, PITCH has expanded our second location in the ever growing west part of this great city.

It was excellent. Portions were much large than usual pan- Asian places, and food was great. Pricing is comparable. A new go to place in Omaha

Food was good, just pricey. I’m not sure the quality dictated prices quite this high.
