There are a variety of delectable specialty martinis, including a white chocolate martini, tiramisu martini (yum!), lychee martini, pomegranate martini, and even a hpnotiq saketini. The extensive sake menu offers a variety of flavors and finishes. If you're a more traditional drinker, Kenobi also offers dozens of white and red wines.
Happy hour is the perfect time to taste Kenobi's drinks. Enjoy it in the bar, in lounge, or out on the patio. It is held every Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and every Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. During happy hour, you will enjoy select appetizers and rolls for $5 and will receive $1 off all drinks.
The appetizers are also very tasty. Forget boring and bland dumplings; I had some of the best dumplings of my life at Kenobi. Their gyoza dumplings are like a sophisticated crab Rangoon, fried and filled with gooey goodness. They are stuffed with crab, lobster and goat cheese and can be dipped in sweet unagi sauce. I enjoyed them with a side of hot edamame pods and a bowl of flavorful miso soup.
Kenobi’s specialty, of course, is sushi. You can order house specialty rolls, hand rolls, sushi (one piece) or sashimi (five pieces). One great house specialty is the shaggy dog, which contains shrimp tempura, cucumber, kanikama, spicy mayo, and spicy pepper paste. If you can’t make up your mind, order a sushi plate combination, which comes with soup or salad and a gorgeously presented variety of sushi pieces.
The lunch plate bentos are perfect for an afternoon meal, each of which are served with rice, soup or salad and veggies (steamed or tempura).
