Sky Bar Steak & Sushi Offers New Look and Unique Soup Menu

GALVESTON ISLAND, Texas (June 12, 2012) — Galveston Restaurant Group reopened the doors to Sky Bar Steak & Sushi, boasting a quaint, new look and exciting additions to its existing menu. The space at 2105 Postoffice Street was previously occupied by Little Daddy’s Gumbo Bar, another property owned by Galveston Restaurant Group, which switched places with the sushi eatery.
The unique steam kettles, a staple in the company’s Saltwater Grill and Gumbo Bar concepts, were incorporated into the redesign to craft a menu of Asian soups and a “soon to be famous” Asian Gumbo. “The made-to-order freshness that the steam kettle creates can cross cuisines easily,” explains owner Danny Hart. “We wanted to showcase the versatility of our cooking styles, from Creole to Asian, by creating a soup menu for Sky Bar.”
The new soup menu offers two types of “Asian Gumbo,” chicken and seafood, as well as an Asian Noodle Soup, Wonton Soup, Asian Vegetable Soup and traditional Miso Soup. The Asian Gumbo is a curry-based broth soup, served with steamed rice and your choice of seafood (scallops, shrimp, fish and crab) or chicken. “Creating great gumbo is a skill that we’ve honed with Little Daddy’s Gumbo Bar,” said partner Johnny Smecca. “The Asian Gumbo brings that rich, hearty flavor to traditional Asian cuisine and offer guests something fresh and exciting that they can’t get anywhere else.”
In addition to the soup fare, Sky Bar also introduced new sushi rolls, including the “Green Lobster Roll” with tempura lobster tail wrapped in signature green soy paper and the “Danny Roll, “ a salmon, tuna and avocado favorite. They are continuing their popular happy hour specials on weekdays from 5 – 7 pm and the “Late Night Happy Hour” on Saturday nights from 10 pm to midnight.
Sky Bar Steak & Sushi was awarded “Best Asian Cuisine” in 2011 and has been a past recipient of the Galveston Restaurant Association Silver Spoon award.
