America's Coolest New Diners
Todd V. Wolfson
Roll On Sushi Diner, Austin, TX
This diner-slash-sushi-joint, from brothers Chip and Chad Reed, is all about “counter culture.” Grab a stool at the bright-red Formica bar that wraps around the central kitchen, where you can witness chef Patrick Acuña busy at work. The menu does its part to Keep Austin Weird with the likes of a chicken fried steak Cholesta Roll. Traditionalists, fear not—there’s also a list of American-style favorites, California rolls and house-made ramen among them.
Don’t Miss: Tempura-fried ice cream for dessert.
