TSUNAMI: SOmetimes funky, sometimes fancy, always fresh and Tobacco-FREE!
Tsunami's fresh sushi and diverse dishes has made its Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans locations increasingly popular. Recently, Tsunami worked with Ochsner Eat Fit to offer nutritious and delicious menu items. All three restaurants were also recently designated as WellSpots. To become a WellSpot, Tsunami adopted a tobacco-free policy. This provides a healthier environment for their employees and patrons by not allowing tobacco use anywhere on the restaurants' premises, both indoors and outdoors.
Restaurant manager, Zac Roy, says that the new tobacco-free policy has inspired some employees to quit smoking for good, and has decreased the number of cigarettes other employees smoke. He was also pleasantly surprised by how popular the healthy menu items are. He shared with us that sometimes a whole table will order their sushi rolls with brown rice! He likes that the Eat Fit menu items give his restaurant the opportunity to share exact nutritional information to those interested.
By offering healthy menu items and establishing a tobacco-free environment, Tsunami is helping make the healthy choice the easy choice for residents of Louisiana! Way to geaux!
