Mardi RA

Don’t travel all the way to New Orleans to enjoy Mardi Gras! Instead, head over to RA Sushi in Leawood on Tuesday, February 12 from 7 p.m. to close to celebrate their version of Fat Tuesday with “Mardi RA.” During the event, enjoy food and drink specials, festive d├ęcor and entertainment.  

Get in the spirit by dressing in Mardi Gras attire and throwing on some colorful beads. A special guest D.J. will keep the crowd going all night long.

Take a bite out of the Big Easy with a variety of spicy food specials made just for the occasion. Mardi RA dishes include the Spicy Chicken and Shishito Green Necklace, a noodle dish tossed with chicken, green and red bell peppers, onion, garlic, chili sesame sauce, and shishito peppers, garnished with Sriracha and black sesame seeds ($7).  The Chili Shrimp Roll is an amped up Viva Las Vegas Roll topped with spicy crab mix, crispy spicy shrimp, cilantro, jalapeno, and Sriracha ($8). Enjoy the Beef Kushiyaki, three beef skewers with green and red bell peppers and onion, tossed in teriyaki sauce ($9).

Tame the heat from these spicy dishes with two special cocktails that give a nod to New Orleans. Sip on a Southern Julep, made with Southern Comfort, Makers Mark, simple syrup and mint ($8), or cool down with a HurRAcane, featuring Southern Comfort, fresh fruit juices, lemon lime soda, simple syrup and grenadine ($8).

Stop in to RA in Park Place for Mardi RA and enjoy one of these Southern spirits with a special twist, or mix one up at home for your own celebration.
