Roy Yamaguchi comes to Scottsdale tomorrow
These days, Scottsdale has no shortage of Asian restaurants, but back when Roy's Scottsdale opened, it wasn't nearly as ubiquitous.
Now the place is a local institution, and believe it or not, it's celebrating its tenth anniversary. Founder and James Beard award-winning chef Roy Yamaguchi will be in town tomorrow, February 28, joining a few local chefs to create a special celebratory dinner.
Check out the menu:
-- Spicy barbecued grilled Mexican prawns (chef Steve Butler, Fleming's Scottsdale) -- Pan-seared Hawaiian moi (chef Mako Segawa, Roy's Desert Ridge) -- Scallops with pork belly and sobresada sauce (Aaron May, Sol y Sombra) -- Olive-oil-poached curried culotte steak (chef Roy Yamaguchi) -- Menage a trois of chocolate (chef Erin Goldman, Roy's Scottsdale)
Wines from Robert Hall will be paired with each course. Dinner is $90 per person, plus tax and tip, and reservations are required. Call 480-905-1155 for info. Roy's is located at 7001 N. Scottsdale Road.
