Stingray Sushi in Old Town Scottsdale has long been a favorite fixture of sushi lovers who can appreciate a happening alfresco dining space. After success in Scottsdale, Stingray then opened an outpost in Phoenix’s Biltmore Fashion Park. And now, Stingray Sushi is opening yet another sure-to-be-a-hit location at the burgeoning Scottsdale Quarter today.
Before the doors officially opened, we got a sneak peek at the sushi hot spot. The chic space is full of long, booth seating and incredibly stylish yellow chairs (comfy enough to make you want to linger, yet definitely eye candy). The wraparound bar starts inside the restaurant and juts out to the patio area, which is sure to be a hit once Arizona dips back down to the double-digit temps. The only design snag might just be the door into the restaurant. While it looks very cool, it certainly doesn’t look like a typical door so I’m sure we’re won’t the only diners that were a little confused at how to get into the dining room.
If you’re a fan of the menus at the Old Town Scottsdale and Phoenix locations, you’re sure to like what the Scottsdale Quarter location is dishing up. The veggie tempura and pork-filled dumplings make for great starters. (However, be sure to let the server know if you want the appetizer before your sushi arrives. We learned that sushi comes to the table pretty quickly.) Stingray also offers a large sushi menu with rolls to fit just about every taste. There are options for sushi purists, those who love more Americanized rolls (Las Vegas roll, for example) and some great sushi-starter options. For the sushi phobic, Stingray’s tasty chicken teriyaki plate features delicious teriyaki-glazed chicken and plenty of veggies.
For dessert, Stingray’s mochi and tempura ice cream are great ways to cool off before heading back outside for more shopping around Scottsdale Quarter. http://www.stingraysushi.com/.
