Destination Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito introduces Sushi Roku Scottsdale.
This August I will be teaching and mentoring at the Reverie Retreat in Scottsdale, Arizona. (Do you have your tickets yet? If not, click HERE and register today!) It's certain to be four jam packed days of education, inspiration, and a whole lot of fun with a bespoke group of wedding professionals from around the country.
As if the excitement of this retreat isn't enough, I am beyond thrilled to be just minutes away from one of my all time favorite special event venues; Sushi Roku Scottsdale.
Located in the lively W Scottsdale Hotel, Sushi Roku offers superlative traditional sushi with a splash of California innovation, incorporating nontraditional ingredients such as jalapenos from Latin America, French black truffles, and Italian cheeses. It is beloved by the local press (“Top 10 Best Sushi” – AZ Central, “Top 10 Asian Restaurants” – Arizona Republic, “Best Sushi in Phoenix” – Arizona Foothills Magazine) and a favorite among the local socialites.
Take a seat in the intimate dining room, or follow a steel staircase to the rooftop patio overlooking the pool. Order and indulge in Spicy Tuna Hanabi, Blue Crab Tartare with Uni & Caviar, and any number of fresh sushi and sashimi offerings. Grab a cocktail, throw back any of their hand-picked Japanese beers, or ask their General Manager, Steven, to hook you up with a wine and sake pairing. You literally cannot make a wrong choice!
Feeling adventurous and looking for something a touch more authentic? Opt for a signature “Omakase” at the elliptical sushi bar, Take note, when you order "Omakase" you put your entire experience in the hands of Roku's masterfully skilled chefs. They will order for you, and orchestrate a menu full of signature offerings. This is what Reverie Retreat founder Erica Powell and I opted for during our planning tours, and I cannot recommend it enough!
Yes, we have a Sushi Roku in Las Vegas, and I love it hard! What we DON'T have in Las Vegas is the S'Mores Dessert with Truffle Essence. That, my friends, you can only get in Scottsdale.
If you're looking for me, I'll be at the sushi bar! And if you want to make your own reservation in advance, simply find them on Open Table or call 480.970.2121.
