The Exchange's Davante Burnley, Justice Akuezue and Cedric Charle are teaming up with chef Gage White to develop an evening of creole-Japanese fusion sushi and nigiri.

That means a mix of traditional rolls and fish along with dishes like the crawfish roll (crawfish salad, avocado, and cucumber), blackened salmon roll (panko fried shrimp, fire roasted red pepper, and avocado topped with blackened salmon), jambalaya roll (andouille sausage, crab meat, celery, red onion, and tomato, topped with Japanese creole sauce), and the alligator roll (cajun alligator, roasted red pepper, avocado, and cajun remoulade sauce).

The event takes place at men's clothing shop 1701 Bespoke in Midtown.

As the Exchange puts it: "This will be an adventurous and memorable experience in style and cuisine that will electrify your taste buds and highlight top talent in the city. Guests will enjoy chef Gage White's unique spin on Japanese sushi, craft cocktails by Justice Akuezue, and, as an added bonus, anyone that books an appointment with one of the tailors the evening of the event will enjoy 15 percent off of their fitting."

Afro Sushi is planned for 6 p.m. on Sun., Nov. 4. Tickets are $65 and available here.
