It’s topped with spicy tuna, spicy mayo and unagi sauce drizzle, and finished with green onion masago. In Japanese, Kokoro means heart, spirit, soul and mind all together. The roll will be priced at $16 and $2 of each roll purchased will be donated to the Hurricane Relief fund, The American Red Cross. Through October 15th
