Bar Review of Bonsai Sushi and Asian Cuisine in De Pere, WI
September 10, 2013
Bonsai Sushi and Asian Cuisine recently opened its doors to the public this summer. I’ve been quite curious to check it out. Luckily for me, a girlfriend of mine was just as curious. We joined forces, hopped in my car and rode off into the sunset and into Bonsai’s doors. Bonsai Sushi is located in East De Pere, near the bridge. There is street parking, and also a parking lot to the side and directly behind Bonsai. As a FYI, the place is slightly hidden in the crowd of boutique shops and other retail stores.
We entered Bonsai through the back entrance, where a sign tells you to check in at the front desk. There is a staircase leading you to the lower floor. Once there, you stumble upon the bar on the right side, the sushi bar on the left, and straight through is the desk to check in if you want to be seated in the dining room. Bonsai is huge. Like, really huge. The actual bar is quite large with plenty of seats around, and even the dining room has many four top tables and larger seated booths along the wall. The bartender instantly greeted us with a smile and ‘how are ya?’ which makes you feel very welcomed. Truthfully, everyone that works at Bonsai seemed to be very friendly and happy to be there. Everyone was so, so nice. My girlfriend and I arrived on a weekend night, around 8PM, and there was a decent crowd already at the bar.
The drinks offered at Bonsai are all on their drink list. You can find red wine, white wine, champagne, beer, and specialty drinks. Oh, and sake. (I mean, come on, was that even a question?) I really liked that they had some Asian choices for beers. They had Sapporo, Asahi, Kirin, Lucky Buddha, and Hitachino White Ale. Actually, they have a nice beer list ranging from your typical bottled beverages of Bud and Bud Light to the more obscure hard-to-find in Green Bay, like, Delirium Tremen, and Hoegaarden. There were also a couple gluten-free options as well. My gal pal and I were in the mood for wine; she ordered a Pino Noir, and I ordered a Malbec. They were $6.50 and $7 respectively.
I’ve heard some comments on how much renovations the masterminds behind Bonsai have done. I must admit, I have no clue as to what the place looked like before, but I can tell you that it looks awesome now. There are many unique and creative touches added to the interior design of Bonsai, you can tell that it took some blood, sweat, and tears to accomplish. On a final note, make sure you walk just past the bar to see the Asian woman mural painted on the wall. Very cool.
