O’s roll debuts Orioles’ opening day

There might be some contention as to who the candy bar, Babe Ruth, was named after - the granddaughter of the Williamson Candy Company or the famous ball player Babe Ruth. Let there be no confusion that the O’s Roll at Ra Sushi is honor of the Oriole's first Japanese-born player Koji Uehara.

The O’s Roll – an eight-piece spicy lobster roll topped with fresh salmon and avocado drizzled with an orange spicy mayo sauce ($11.00) – will be available at RA Sushi beginning with the season opener on April 6, 2009 against the New York Yankees and throughout the 2009 baseball season. Guests will be able to order the O’s Roll during lunch, happy hour and dinner hours seven days a week and will be able to receive $2 off the roll when they come in the day of a game with their ticket stub from that game.

“We were excited to hear that the Orioles signed Koji and we had him in mind when we conceptualized the O’s Roll,” said Scott Bernas, manager of RA Sushi in Baltimore and a devoted Orioles fan. “His pitching skills are on fire so we made sure the roll had some spice to it. And, to really top it off in Orioles-style, we added a splash of orange.”
