    Amazing experience all around. Not only was Chef Scott able to prepare a multitude of sushi and raw bar specialties we requested, he added to them! He noticed several of our friends were drinking from a variety of Saki's we had and he turned an hour of our party into a Saki tasting and paired special rolls with each drink and in between (to help us not guzzle saki, he offered to pass the reigns and instruct a few guests on creating their own roll! Everyone loved it. It was a really nice and unexpected addition to our party. Our guests thought we had it planned all along! We are going to have another theme night just because it was so fun! Chef is going to roast a full pig by the pool!
