Stingray Sushi in Scottsdale Has Closed; New Location to Open in Chandler This Fall

After a decade of success in Old Town Scottsdale, the original location of Stingray Sushi has closed its doors. The restaurant's lease is up, but owners say they're already looking for a new location in the area. The goal is to reopen a Scottsdale sushi outlet in 2015.

In the meantime, there's plenty of other raw fish to be had. Stingray Sushi's sister restaurant, Geisha-A-Go-Go, has expanded its lunch offerings to seven days a week, and a third location of Stringray is on track to open in the Southeast Valley later this fall.

Stingray Sushi Chandler/Ahwatukee will be located at 900 North 54th Street, just off I-10 and Ray Road.

The 5,000-square-foot restaurant will be housed in a custom-built space set to be completed by late October. The design will include two spacious and shaded dining patios. The restaurant will serve chef Andrew Nam's menu of creative sushi, noodles, salads, soups, bento box lunches, and signature entrees. The drink menu will be handcrafted by well-known Valley mixologist Jason Asher.

"Back in 2003, we opened our little sushi bar inside a 2,300-square-foot space, and we never thought Stingray would grow to include three additional restaurants all across the Valley," says Bryan Chittenden, co-owner of Stingray Sushi along with Greg Donnally and Andrew Nam.

The restaurant announced its closure last week on Facebook. Stingray Sushi at the Biltmore Fashion Park and Scottsdale Quarter are still open.
