Phoenix Elite Event at Bamboo Sushi

On Wednesday, February 12th, Yelp Elites celebrated Valentine’s Day early with Bamboo Sushi located at Biltmore Fashion Park. Their unique craft cocktails, fresh seafood, and world class service were the perfect recipe for a lovely evening. This gorgeous concept is not only praised for their stunning ambience and culinary talent, but also for their sustainability mission. Their food is sustainably caught, humanely raised, and naturally grown. Bamboo Sushi became the world’s first certified sustainable sushi restaurant in 2008. How cool is that?

As Elites settled in, they sipped on their cocktails which were comprised of unique ingredients such as miso, yuzu, shiso, and more. Guests heard the Bamboo story from their management team who flew in from Portland for this event. To start, the team passed out edamame, shishito peppers, and vegetable tempura for guests to share. Next, attendees were invited to select an entrée off of the menu, which offered everything from salads and a burger, to sushi rolls and sashimi! Some menu favorites were the miso-cured black cod, Friday the 13th roll and the chasing the dragon roll. To end the night on a sweet note, guests shared their yuzu mochi crunch cake. Elites were sent home with a gift card to return again, a Yelp sake glass, and chocolate for Valentine’s Day!
