In the fall, we shared Scottsdale-based Sapporo’s new lunch menu and fresh look. Now, the Pacific Rim-inspired restaurant has unveiled even more exciting new additions, including a new cocktail program, fresh dinner and happy hour menus and a complimentary shuttle for diners before and after meals.
New “Liquid Market” Cocktail Program Sapporo recently debuted a “Liquid Market” cocktail program that provides diners with refreshing new drinks that highlight seasonal ingredients and house-infused spirits. The selections from the “Liquid Market” cocktail menu include the summer-friendly Cucumber Sage Martini with Hendrick’s Gin, muddled cucumber and sage, and house-made simple syrup ($11); Gingered Bourbon Lemonade with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Cointreau, muddled fresh ginger, and house-made lemonade ($10); and Fiji Apple Sangria with Merlot, Brandy, Fuji apples, and a touch of cinnamon ($8). For diners who don’t want to drink alone–literally–The Sapporo Torch is a shareable cocktail made especially for two with Myers’ Rum, Bacardi Rum, Cointreau, Velvet Falernum, fresh grapefruit juice, and fresh lime juice ($19). To top off the Sapporo Torch, the cocktail for two is crowned with a flaming half lime.
Dinner and Happy Hour Sapporo also recently launched new dinner and happy hour menus. New menu items include Crab Napoleon with fresh lump crab meat, avocado, wasabi cream, and spiced chili bisque ($12); a Satay Trio with two skewers each of grilled chicken, marinated beef, and spring roll-wrapped pesto shrimp ($8); and Salt ‘N Pepper Cod seasoned with sea salt and freshly milled black pepper, prepared tempura-style ($13). For a refreshing end to the meal, Sapporo’s handmade sorbets and ice creams, with flavors that rotate weekly like lychee and chocolate coconut ($4-$5) are the way to go. The Sapporo happy hour menu is offered throughout the restaurant 3-7 p.m. daily, and in the lounge Thursday through Saturday 10 p.m.-close
Complimentary Shuttle Service Convenient and super luxurious, Sapporo is also serving its customers with a complimentary neighborhood shuttle. The shuttle can transport customers before and after meals, from 4 p.m. to close daily–making a safe and fun way to get to and from the restaurant. Available for both pick-up and drop-off at countless spots within a 10-mile radius of the restaurant, including Old Town Scottsdale for a night on the town, Salt River Fields for a Major League Baseball spring training session, or Scottsdale’s The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa for a relaxing evening excursion, Sapporo’s 14-person shuttle can be reserved in advance by calling the restaurant or inquiring at the front entrance.
