All the good vibes emitting from guests at RA Sushi Bar Restaurant prompted the Midtown restaurant and bar to extend the popular Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp and Melon-Kiwi-Tini pairing through July 31. There's an instant chill factor with each bite of Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp layered with watermelon, kiwi, orange slices and lychee and topped with shrimp. Melon-Kiwi-Tini muddles Monin Watermelon, Svedka Citron, shochu and a splash of citrus soda and dolls it up with watermelon and kiwi slices. Order the pairing for $18 -- less than a bikini and one size fits all.
